By far the most popular way to hunt white-tailed deer is from an elevated stand. Elevated stands are permanent or temporary stands that place the hunter above ground level. They come as a tree stand placed in or against trees, or as a free-standing structure. They have become increasingly popular in recent years with both firearm and bow hunters. While they offer certain advantages, they also have some drawbacks, including safety issues.
