Prevent game from noticing your presence by shooting from a distance up in a hang-on stand. Because they're designed without ladders, hang-on hunting stands provide greater flexibility as far as positioning. Depending on the tree you're using, you can secure it at the ideal height and side of the tree for spotting game in the area. The compact design is ideal for hunters who pack light, as many don't provide space for shooting gear and accessories like other treestands and blinds do. For greater coverage, strategically place multiple hang-on stands around a wooded area to ensure you won't miss a thing.
Many hang-on treestands come with a combination seat and footrest to help keep you securely supported high above the ground. The seat allows you to relax while you wait for game to pass by, and the footrest makes it easy to stand when it's time to shoot your rifle or draw your bow. Some seats offer backrests to provide greater comfort during long days in the wild. The minimalist design is great for staying concealed, and the semipermanent attachments help the stand remain securely in position. To help make climbing up and down a little easier during your hunting trip, place a set of climbing sticks or tree steps along the trunk of the tree directly beneath your stand.
