New York, New York

A hunter requires three things for a successful hunting. First, is skills and knowledge in hunting; secondly, is wearing a complete set of gear and use a good hunting weapon. Lastly, by utilizing an excellent climbing tree stand. 

Among the above-mentioned details, one important aspect that most beginners in hunting forget is the use of tree stand. This equipment has become an essential hunting tool for it provides the hunter an excellent view of the target. Moreover, it is a huge help for new hunters to keep watch of animals whether it is a buck, bear or bird. 


Albeit climbing tree stand offers wonderful advantages to hunters, using this equipment also has risks particularly for beginners. This hunting gear is attached to a tree to provide the hunter a good vantage point. However, if you happen to choose a climbing tree stand with a poor build, you might fall and suffer from injuries. 


Then, what you should do avoid this error? 

Learn how to pick the best climbing tree stand for hunting by looking at these four important qualities of this equipment. 


Constructed from High-Grade Materials 

One thing you must check in a climbing tree stand is the type of material it is made from. Pick a tree stand that is constructed using high-grade steel. In addition, take notice if the equipment is powder coated. A climbing tree stand that is powder coated is rust-free and can withstand extreme weather conditions. Thus, such type of tree stand has long-term use. 


Safety Straps 

Another indicator of an excellent climbing tree stand is if it features safety straps. A climbing tree stand with safety straps reduces your risk of falling from the platform. Likewise, it keeps you in place especially if the tree where you attached the tree stand is at a steep angle. 

Aside from the straps, check out if the tree stand that you plan to buy is safe to use. Identify its weight limit, the equipment’s fall arrest system and stability of the platform. Also, make sure that tree stand has a strong grip on the tree. 


Comfortable to Use 

The capability of a tree stand to provide comfort is a significant feature. You would never want a tree stand that makes your back ache and causes muscle soreness. There are certain brands of a tree stand that is crafted for resting. Thus, pick one that is comfortable to use. Do not choose one that is uncomfortable and makes you lose focus on your activity. 



If you are searching for a self-climbing tree stand, select a brand that is portable. There are certain brands of this gear which is lightweight and easy to carry. Using a tree stand that is heavy and difficult to travel is a nuisance. You will never enjoy your hunting experience if you happen to pick such tree stand. Hence, remember to buy a tree stand that is suitable for walking long distances.
