I guess I'm the chicken crap of the board when it comes to treestands. I had one fall with me when I first started hunting after I had ascended about 10 feet; just slipped back down the tree when I was trying to settle the bottom. Ever since then, when I start approaching the 10 feet mark, my legs get like jello and I usually can't go any higher than 12-15 feet. I've had to adapt to using tree cover to conceal me being so low but I have made it work quite a bit. Then again I've killed them sitting on the ground with my bow at 15 yards. Just be still and blend in.

Depends on the tree, surrounding trees and cover, and area I'm hunting. Sometimes I might be less than 20' other times I might be closer to 30' or anywhere in between.

Because of the underbrush, I have a few that are at 15 feet. Most others are at 20.

Frequently, I am no higher than 20ft due to the areas that I hunt. Normally though I am between 14ft-18ft due to the same reason, and I pick trees that offer me the best available cover, or backdrop.

I usually judge by looking at the tree canopy.. It is normally around 15 to 20 ft where i come from.
