I have used ladder stands (depends on location), tripods (location issues), chain on stands (not so much any more) and finally the climbers. I have a few "buddy stands" but my go-to ladder stands for portability are the Ol'Man ladder stands. Shooting rails and a very comfortable seat on the Ol'Man. I also use the Ol'Man Grand climbing stand. Its an old design but very comfortable and extremely light if you get the new aluminum models (mine is steel). I have a buddy that used Ol'Man and tried a Summit Titan and he is very happy with it as well and, from your OP, he is larger than you.

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


From page 38 of the Tennessee Hunting Guide:

Treestands: The use of wire, nails or other metal material is prohibited in the building or attaching of climbing devices or hunting stands. Portable devices or stands that do not injure trees can be used. Hunting from permanent, attached stands is prohibited. Leaving any personal property, including treestands, unattended for more than 24 hours is prohibited without prior approval of the area manager. WMAs require that treestands must be marked with the hunter’s TWRA ID number.


This is how you get up the tree to a hang on stand when you aren't allowed to use screw-in steps in the tree:

This is how you do it really fast:

How to Hang a Tree Stand in 5 Minutes!

You need to be somewhat nimble and athletic to safely hang climbing sticks and a hang on stand by yourself. Using a climber treestand is less physically demanding and safer.
