Anyway, hopefully this won't be a criticized question as well but what do you mean by bending at the hips?
Sorry mossy, I'm just old school, I just start shooting. One thing the guys didn't talk about was safety, always use a safety belt. If you forget it dont' climb you ass up that tree its not worth it. I suggest you start small and shoot from your tailgate then find a shed to climb on and then maybe your house. Get comfortable then use the treestand. But be smart set up your stand about two feet off the ground and get comfortable with your safety belt like leaning out with it and movin around. Also step away from you stand in the sunlight and make sure you have no shiney spots. Good luck
