    Hang on tree stands

    I sold my climber and hang on stands before the move and against my wifeís warnings no less. I find myself in the market for a couple hang on stands. Nothing thatís gonna cost me a trip to the loan officer at the bank either. They could very well get used and chewed on by some bears at my bait sites.
    So what sites/ stores, brands/ models are some low budget but good hang on stands that arenít heavy either? I havenít bought a stand in nearly 15 years and am so far outta the loop on them.

    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    My issue is I have a 1/2 mile hike through the woods to one site and a 1.5 mile hike to the other. Ladder stands would be a pain to get in and out. My kids would have issues with a climber I’m sure. Hang on seems most effective and practical for my situation.

    I have a few you can have. Only 2 conditions. You can't tighten or tinker with them and you have to have a few cameras pointed at them and run a live pod cast linked to all of us here on this forum.

    Iíve never been one to pay lots of money for a tree stand. If bears could be chewing on them I would look for one that uses a chain and not a strap. Although I have no idea if they still make em that way

    I’m contemplating just using a pop up blind this fall and focus on getting a stand(s) for next year. Thinking the late fall end of season gear sales people have may be the ticket.

    One of those bears might think your a meal with that honey bun in your pocket while sitting in a ground blind!
