20 feet is the max for me. Normally, 14 to 18' is adequate.

I like to hunt at ~18-20' b/c I fidget and that helps me get busted less, but after hunting at 10-15' in WY all week I'm rethinking the height.

I get at least 20' and sometimes up to 30 while bow hunting. Shot angle is not a problem.

I hunt as high as 30' if the situation allows it, every setup is different with some being lower. Gameye is right, angle is generally not a problem!

I have killed a buck and a doe from 7 feet high. Unique situation though.

Usually I am from 12 to 20 feet, depends on each individual stand.

I've hunted as low as 10 ft only because that was the only tree that I could climb in the area. Generally, I'm around 20ft up. It has alot to do with the cover around. If there's alot of branches to break your outline up, you don't have to climb as high. If it's a straight tree and not alot of cover, generally I'll climb around 25ft. Late season, I may go as high as 30-35.
