Climbing tree stands

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone on FM has either a Tree Walker or a Equalizer and if so what they think of them? I know about Summit and Lone Wolf being two really good stands, along with the others that i have read about but I came across these two this weekend when I was goggling Climbing tree stands and they look pretty solid! Any impute would be super.

I picked up a Summit Titan this year. It's a bit heavier when you have to carry all of you normal gear in, and now your stand as well. I really liked having it though and the stand is pretty quiet while climbing depending on how careful you are. It's also really comfortable. It's as comfortable as our most comfortable ladder stands that we have in place where I do most of my hunting.

The big thing I liked about it was it gave me choices and options. It doesn't fit in every tree, but neither do the other stands.

I picked mine up mainly to try to hunt around the Metro. Since you can't use screw in's in public land it was kind of a given.

Hello Chris,

My Brother-In-Law who hunts the land as well found the leftovers of a deer two weeks ago so i would guess its her but who knows.

There seems to be allot of good climbers out there and like i mention, all the different of Summits are good and Chris weighted in on his API being great.

Thanks for weighting in on your brands and I did not expect to get a huge response on the two i mentioned because both are produced in the South and I know one of them do not have dealers in MN and the other one may not as well.

Thanks guys for your comments. have a great Thanksgiving.

I have used a Tree Lounge for the past 12 years. It is the most comfortable stand I have found for an all day sit which I do often. It is a little on the heavy side but with the use of a cart or this year the bolt on wheels, it works great and doubled as a cart to haul a deer out over 1 mile.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
