I'm 275 lb and 5'10", most stands I've come across are 300lb capacity so I think I'm good there. I'll be putting it in WMA so preferably a portable stand. I need the pros and cons of ladder stands, hang on stands, stand curtains... Never owned one, used one once in my life. I'll likely get it after the holly days when they go on sale. Are there any brands I should definitely stay away from on account of safety? Thanks in advance \:\)

if you want a portable stand you need a climber and I recommend a summit. I titan or goliath are my two favorites. as far as ladder stand ive used a whole bunch and I have found to many I just hate. I usually get one with a shooting rail that can be up or down. hang ons the only ones I use a millennium. and safety wise get a safety harness and a life line. and with ladder stands and hang on don't cheap out of ratchet straps buy some good ones and spend the extra money so you can be safe.

X2 on the Goliath, I used a Gorilla for years and got the Summit this year. Very light, easy to carry and set up / climb and sturdy. I don't think I'd do ladder stands on a WMA.

you got to buy climbing sticks. and put them up one by one we use ratchet straps on them to. im sure there are you tube vidoes on them to explain that is easier to understand then me typing it. I don't like hang on stands they are a pain and not as comfortable as a ladder stand. if I were you id start with a climber not familiar with public land but I doubt you can have a ladder or hang on stand on them and even if you can they are probably likely to get stolen.

The only regulations for WMA is that you do not use nails in the trees, and you must wear a safety harness. I'm 95% on a ladder since it has the ladder on it already lol

I'd go with a ladder stand myself. Just go by Bass Pro or a sporting goods store that has several different types and pick you one out. Buy it there or either order it. I hear GNB has some good deals on stands.
