What is the Most Comfortable Hang On Stand?

Recommended Posts

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.

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

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

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.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
