I've been happy with the 2 man Ameristep stands from Wal Mart...Wide ladder and 2 contact points with tree at the top..
I cut a piece of plywood to fit the seat area and mount a molded boat seat on a low swivel to the middle of it. Attach the plywood to seat with 2 ratchet straps...Hang some burlap around the shooting rail and it's comfy and concealed...Great for one person...

I had Ameristep in Wisconsin and liked them alot. The platform was bigger then just a foot rest. I could fold the seat up and actually stand and move.

But I've gone to all hang-ons now, with just me putting them up.

I was at Dick's the other day to purchase a couple on clearance. I got the basic stand with the bigger foot platform and shooting rail for $69 (and then $10 off with a coupon). They are no frills but comfortable to hunt out of.

But, they had a couple of Field and Stream models for $149 that really looked nice. The ladders were bigger and the seat/platform area looked huge.

I'll keep my eye on them to see if they come down a little more. They were the best looking ladders for under $200 that I have seen.


I have one of the 2man, it is very comfortable & yep plenty of room on the platform.
