What is the Most Comfortable Hang On Stand?

9 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I'm always looking for a better stand for all day hunts. The two most comfy hang ons I have now are a Gorilla w/arm/foot rest, and an Ameristep Grizzly (arm/footrest/and hanging seat.)

I've recently been looking at the Millenium Hang on. Does anybody own one?

Any input on comfortable stands would be great. Arm rests and foot rests are important to me, weight is not.

My lone wolfs are the most comfortable for me. Being able to move a bit without making a pop or squeak is nice.

By far I gotta go with the Trophyline Tree Saddle. But if your looking for arm and foot rests then its not for you.

What model do you like? I love my wolf sit/climb, the sling type seat is awesome, but I don't see their hang-ons as being comfortable for 12 hours.

(I also have the wolf hand climber seat and hate it, sitting on a wood bleacher is just a comfy. But maybe I'm just a wussy smile )

I have heard of these before. How do you prefer to hunt with them? Steps/ladder sections?

Here is another guestion. Could I use it in conjunction with my climber- meaning using my lone wolf hand climber portion as a foot platform and the tree saddle as my top (seat portion)? And climb a tree?? Essentialy making the worlds lighest climber? (9 lbs) You could walk new counrty all day and if you found some hot sign be up in the tree in no time smile

Follow my madness?

I have only used them with steps because I dont have any climbing sticks. I can get usually get set up in a little over 5 minutes depending on how fast and how many steps I put in. I would like to get some sticks because I think I could get set up even faster but you would still probably want a couple of steps at the top of the ladder for a place to rest your feet.

I dont think using your climber would work like that becasue you have to tie the strap of the tree saddle around the tree and you would constantly have to keep tieing and untieing the strap until you got up high enough. I have sat in my tree saddle before and used a portable stand that was alreay up as the foot rest just because it is more comfortable to sit in than on a portable seat so using your climber like it was designed to get up in the tree then sitting in the saddle would work but if your gonna take the time to carry your climber in the woods you might as well just bring some steps or sticks with and save some weight.

I like the Boss XL I think it's called Huge platform comfy seat. Doesn't have side arm rests but it's a nice hang on tree stands.

I own 3 Milleniums. Couldn't be more comfortable. Easy to hang because of the bracket. Quite lightweight. Pretty quiet too. I can shoot my bow without much trouble while seated. I recommend cinch or ratchet strap on bottom after hanging for added sturdyness.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
