Climbing stand

These stands are designed for trees with straight trunks and consist of two sections. A hunter “walks” the stand up a tree by moving the top section with the hands and the bottom section with the feet. Always keep the two sections of the stand connected with a tether. While on the ground, adjust the stand to allow for the tapering of the tree that occurs as you go up.
