How-To Stand Hunting Tactics Treestands

10 Best Treestand Hunting Tips

by Bill Winke   |  September 12th, 2012 10

Treestand hunting is not an exact science. We all learn with experience, and there is definitely an element of “feel” involved when it comes to choosing stand locations and hunting them.

That said, there are definitely some rules to follow if you want stands that consistently produce high-odds shots at whitetails. This article isn’t about deer movement or funnels or that sort of thing; this is the nuts and bolts of stand placement. Add in some scouting and a few seasons of experience and you will be consistently taking whitetails from the branches above.

So, without further ado, here are my 10 best treestand hunting tips:

  • Slingin' sticks

    If a hunter was to leave his scent at or around his stand by y'alls experience or expertice how long can it take for your scent to be eliminated? I know there would be alot of variables but whats y'alls educated guess?

  • Kevin

    I agree with most of this article except, I hunt using climbing tree stands almost all the time because of theft issues, not wanting to educate other hunters where I hunt, and not wanting to leave scented up stands, steps, ladders etc. to educate deer. I try to hunt a different location every day of the week and only hunt each spot once a week. I live on venison and eat it every day so being able to kill as many deer as possible is a necessity for me and therefor scent control is a big key.
