A treestand is an open or enclosed and secure platform where a hunter can look for and hunt objects. A tree stand is widely used for hunting and the soldiers also use it.
There are different kinds of tree stands such as climbing stands, ladder stand, box stand etc. A treestand gives lots of advantages to the users. The user can locate any animal or objects hiding their location. It can be set to anyplace on the tree the user wants. They can pass hours after hours on the treestand if the stand is a quality treestand. Overall a treestand is a useful object for a climber, hunter or soldier.
How to use a climbing tree stand?
It is not so hard to use a treestand. I am discussing the topic below.
First, select a perfect tree where you will set the treestand. A bigger tree is better for staying. When you are moving here and there it won’t shake much. So you can make your job appropriately if you set it on a bigger tree.
Try to hide yourself using the trunk, branches or other tree trunks. Try not to sound much. Keep in mind as much as you can keep calm you are out of the attention of any creature in the ground. As much as you can set yourself higher, you will get benefits.
Securing the tree stand angel is another factor. Select a tree which width is same at the top and at the bottom. Try to fix an angle from where you can throw an arrow or shoot a bullet perfectly.
Another thing is to take a wide space. Do not set up the treestand at any tree where there are lots of trees nearby. Your target may be missed for other trees.
Last and the most important thing is keeping yourself secure. Make sure you are safe on the treestand. There is no chance of falling down to the ground. Make sure you can move comfortably and hide accurately.
Are climbing treestands safe?
Yes, surely a climbing treestand is safe if you can select a good treestand. Again, it can be a threat to your life if you are not able to choose a good one.
There are different treestands with different features. The main thing about a treestand is the load capacity. If your treestand is not able to carry good load never look back to that. Besides, do not select a ladder which load capacity is almost the same as your load capacity. Make sure it can carry a bit more load than your weight. Some people think lightweight treestand is not appropriate for an overweighted person. It is wrong thinking. A quality lightweight climbing treestand can carry a big load as well.
Another thing you have to look after is if the treestand is strong and solid or not. If there is any frail part or weak stand then never select the treestand. Must look after the material the treestand made of. Generally, a treestand of steel or aluminum is the best. Before buying the treestand take knowledge properly about the treestand.
Another thing is, buy a treestand of a good brand. Generally, a treestand of a good manufacturer is always safe and secure. The risk of breaking or separation is almost zero. Those who provide warranty are also good manufacturer.
So if you can choose a good climbing treestand it is surely safe for you.
