Depends on the type hunting you are doing and how far/rough it is getting to the stand location!

Screw in steps will gut you like a fish if you slip and fall on one. Heard too many stories of them failing in the hunters Ed safety reports. Got rid of mine.

Go with stick ladders. A little more work, a little noisier, but it is much better than lying on the ground with 10' of intestines strung up over your screw in step.

Be sure to use a fall restraint system every time!
If you can't trust people with freedom, how can you trust them with power ?

I disagree on the work. Stick ladders are much less work and time than screwwng in all those steps. Especially on hard wood trees like oaks.
It's not rocket surgery, for crying outside!
