Hang-on Treestand

Postby Greenhead Grappler » Thu Sep 09, 2010 12:24 pm

I'm looking for a hang-on treestand that has medium comfort and under $130. I dont want millenium, lone wolf, etc. so let's not go into those way over-priced money pits.

So I need some input. Leaning towards Gorilla. But I'm open to anything

What it needs:
Easy to hang. I move it about 5-10 times a season
Lightweight. I hunt public land and have to walk-in

Have you checked out Amacker tree stands? I bought one about ten years ago and it's still going srong. I don't know what model I have, it weighs 13 lbs. Their web site only shows one hang on model at 15 lbs. Good luck in your search and purchase.

Also under your price range.

Check out the sportsmans guide, they have a bunch of inhouse brand treestands. You could buy a ladder stand under $130 and ladder stands cant be beat for comfort in my opinion. I bought 4 of the cheapest hang ons and they are alright as long as I find a tree that bends back a little. The platforms aren't very big but I am able to hunt 4 different spots for $120 so I cant complain too much also I bought a tree seat to sit in which makes it a little more comfortable. I really like the sound of thier Extreme comfort stand for $60 also the climbing stick package looks good 20' for $40.

I like the big game boss XL - big platform and fold up seat make it comfortable and easy to transition from seated to standing shots

big dog treestands

Big dog 3 I have it but it is called the bearcat XL when you buy it at Menards, was on sale last week for $59 it is by far the most comfortable stand I have ever used, the seat is a suspension seat, not hard so it is ALL DAY comfortable.

the company has since gone out of business, but strongbuilt made a good 80 dollar sling seat lock on for a while. check academy and see if they still have one.

Gorilla is the way to go for hang-ons IMO sit pretty comturble and easy to hang. ive got a Gorilla hang-on and a Gorilla climber and never had a problem out of either of them and my friends has quite a few Gorilla stands and no problems out of any! :thumbsup:
