Your trees must be big, to big
Always have 2 people and lash the tree first.
pick smaller trees

put a screw in step in to rest the stand on or if you can find a step that is like a pullstrap they work well to. ameristep makes the ones i use they also work well to hang your backpack on after you get the stand up

Use a rope and pulley to lift and hold it in place while you strap it. There are several options for hanging the pulley. I have used tree steps but now use an old safety strap that has a carabiner on it. The carabiner hooks through the eye of the pulley. You can use any small pulley but I one that is ratcheting which help hold it when I make small adjustments.

I first find out how tall my ladder or steps are going to be. Measure up the tree and mark on tree using my climber. I cut the end off a screw in step slip a piece of 1/2 " PVC on it and beat the end of step with hammer to brad it and ensure the PVC wont slide off. (This is done previous to setting the stand up.) I then screw in the step well above the mark for the ladder/steps. Hoist my stand up and tie it off on the closest tree. I then climb back up with my climber and strap stand down. Climb back down and set ladder/steps up. Been doing this for years by my self and it works great. God luck!

use your climber when putting up stand, if indeed you hunt a straight tree, makes it so much easier

Use a linemans belt, that way you have both hands free to work with, makes it much easier and safer!

Using the step is what I do as well. I also found out the hard way about the size of the tree. I liked the big trees since I weigh over 260lbs I don't want to crash down with the tree. But I finally have ended up with strapping onto trees I can still get my arms around. Of course they sway with the wind which forces me to take a nap on a breezy day. Now in a climbing stand that is not too much of a problem but those little hang on stands give you that Oh crap I am falling feeling when you snap out of the nap.
