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 get that, not the point, or i wouldnt have posted in the first place. How about he is stubborn and wont wear a life jacket and instead of freezing in his old deer hunting garb a pair of new outerwear designed for ice fishing would be great and as a bonus add safety?
    • You were definitely against it.  BD not.   And, as the old joke goes, it is a matter of price.   If they can get jobs for 700 bucks a year subsidy per job, might well be worth doing.  On the other hand 200k per job or whatever it really is seems too expensive.     But if you are one of the purists, then oppose everything.    I'm not that doctrinaire. 
    • I thought it was worth mentioning that I;ve found great mounting boards and mounting ideas from checking the catalogs of some taxidermy supply page and catalogs. 
    • I get being concerned about the ones you love, that's aways a good practice, but it seems like no matter how well I try to educate my wife on ice safety and my precautions regarding it, she still thinks I'm going to die.  If they have $400+ to burn, so be it, but I've compromised by saying I'll wear a life jacket out the first time or two.  Seems like a more economical solution to me. 
    • I agree with Hawg and Sea Hage. This is a convection heater and heat rises through the top vents. At 15k BTU the area where you put the fan will reach 300+ deg. f. and deform the fan blades as they are made of plastic. Put the fan at the bottom as suggested. Your main objective is to get hot air circulation through the house. The floor will usually be cooler due to the holes but with the fan blowing at the bottom cold air is returned at the bottom of the heater through circulation. My house is same size as yours. I have a 9k BTU Dura Flame convection heater and tried several fan configurations. I did burn up the fan blades when installed as in you pic running at about 7k BTU. I than converted it to a forced air with air flow fan control using temperature controlled relays. The burner I posted earlier is from that heater where I increased the BTU to 12k. The temp in my house is very consistent floor to ceiling and operates same as my home furnace. May be a bit of overkill for what your looking for but really works well with great comfort at any outside temp and wind.   The bump  on the air duct has 3 four inch compute fans to maintain. Behind the white framed box I put a 4 speed auto fan for fast warm-up I turn off when warm. Runs at 12.5k BTU. The pipe duct going to the door I added this fall to heat my attached flip. Cold air return is opening below the heat chamber and at the auto fan.   When I am not in the house and want to keep it warm, I turn off the temp control relays and open the door to the original convection and turn the heat down.  
    • I have a Crossfire II 4-16x50 on my .308 elk rifle and I love it. Great scope, very clear and bright and Vortex quality. I have not had a single issue with it and the Crossfire is on the budget end of their glass. I've great reports from those with the higher end scopes. I wouldn't hesitate for a second. As far as which one to choose, I find the 50mm scope a little big and heavy. You'll likely have issues mounting to an AR due to its size. Mine had the benefit of the barrel taper allowing for the larger lens to fit. If I had a flat top like an AR it wouldn't fit as well. 
    • This is a post on the low flame issue that was brought up awhile back along with a question. As most said the low flame is normal and says so in the manual. I just picked one up, a used one. Hooked it all up and had very minimal flame. I have several of these units in rental houses so I am able to compare. The unit I just picked up is an abnormally low flame. I took a little square head bolt out of the black pipe that goes directly into the burner and blew it out. This was a mistake as at this point I can not get the burner to light. Ok now I need to get to the burner. I took apart the unit and took the burner out and blew it out real good then reassembled the unit and wa-la great flame and great heat, better then my newer units.   Now for the ? part of my post. I am having a 10degree drop in the temp before the unit starts back up. My other shacks are not much better but a little. Anyone have any experience with this issue?
    • usually 2 weeks to get stuff at st jo.  did brats3 weeks ago. buncha meat sticks this last week  
    • I would get side imaging. The C store has a Garmin echomap 73sv for $450 on Saturday as a doorbuster and $499 on sale.Regularly $999.   I have had 4 different Lowrance units but am 90% sure that I am going to replace my dead Elite 5 with a Garmin graph.Probably the Striker 7SV
