Types of Elevated Stands
Portable Tree Stands
Portable tree stands can be safe and environmentally friendly. Homemade stands should not be used. Commercial stands that are manufactured, certified, and tested to Treestand Manufacturer's Association (TMA) standards are best. You should follow the manufacturer's instructions and also practice installing a tree stand before you go hunting. Portable tree stands come in three basic types: hang-ons, climbing stands, and ladder stands.
