My favorite stand tree is a big, double trunked locust. Several years ago, I decided to not bother taking down the stand and it has been up quite a while now, no one has messed with it even being on public land, but a storm did come along and blow off the trunk it was in about six feet above it. I moved it to the other trunk, but as big as the tree is, that stand would have been toast if it had come down like that one.

Well, sometimes it just pays not to get up in the morning...

Out one evening on the edge of a beaver pond waiting for a moose, on the way in we spotted a big cotton wood, that was partially gnawed through, as it was coming on dark, we could hear the sound of a beaver back to work on the tree. A good time to leave.

Some of the bow hunters I knew in Alaska, had good are with lots of black bears, they put a stand in a tree, and had a bait station, one of the guys went out early in the morning, still dark, to set up in the stand.

He got into the tree, was just settled in, and it started to rain, that was odd, no rain in the forecast, he finally looked up in the tree, and about ten feet further up was a small very nervous bear...not rain!

One of the guys I used to teach hunter ed with, had one of those self climbing stands. When in position it was almost a reclining chair, I think he got more sleep in that stand than back at camp.

My middle son had one, a "Tree Lounger". I stopped using
any climbing stands when the one I was in decided that the
foot part wanted to leave, leaving me hanging by the hand
rail. Fortunately I was in my back yard checking out the
climber, and wasn't but maybe 12 feet up. It was an old
Baker stand, before they put the nylon strap on to hold
the two pieces together. It was ladder stands, box blinds
or stands built into the crotch of a tree since.

We lost some of the ability to hunt from trees, when we moved down to the ground and started walking upright.
