I killed a deer out of one with a bow last year. They seem to be most effective when on field edges. I do not like them when they are in hardwoods. I prefer to have hang-on stands in the "better" spots.

I find they work well if you can find a good, well used route from bedding to feeding areas that are in the hardwoods. Once I find those areas I would put up a ladder stand in some thicker stuff that I can shoot down out of. I try to make only one entry way and I usually use those stands for all day hunt because of their location to mast, and browse. Most deer and especially good bucks seem to not move much and being somewhat closer to their bedding area where they browse and play during the day usually accounts for my seeing alot of action during daylight hours.

I have shot a few deer from my ladder stand during bow season; but usually use a climber.

What he said. I leave the front bar off until gun season so that nothing is in your way.

under the right conditions u can kill deer from a ladder stand. i prefer to be higher than most ladder stands. i have several of them and use them often.i like using them in early season to pinpoint where the deer are traveling and then set up a lock on stand or climber

Killed SEVERAL deer out of ladder stands.
Placement on well worn trails well before the season is critical.
That coupled with a trophy rock is the ticket. \:D
