sticks...20 ft then a few screw ins to get you a little higher if you want.


This is what I do. I may have a total of 5 in when I am done, and one of those is to hang my pack on.

screw in's have always worked for me. I just need to get the attachment for my drill and I'll probably like them even better. They can be a pain to get started but once started it's easy. IMO

For $24 for 3 Guide Gear sticks at Sportsman's Guide, You can run 20+ feet up for $50. They are solid. If you're gonna spend the same money, I'd go with the sticks. My thought is that I really don't want to kill any trees on my place unless they're going for timber. I hung 2 new stands with enough sticks to hit 22 feet and I think I spent a grand total of around $200. I also found in a comparison that I like Guide Gear better than Big Game.

You won't kill any trees with screw in steps. I have placed them in 100s of trees for short periods of time to 4+ years and have never seen a tree show any signs of long term damage.
