Level , I hunt the mountains I can climb 40 feet up a tree and have a level shot on the main trail on a ridge. But its about 60 or 70 feet out of the back side of the stand. I hunt a lot out of ground blinds made out of fallen logs I stack them up in a 4 ft high x 6 ft square.

I usually look for trees that I can get at least 20' off the ground, plus giving me a good backdrop so my outline blends in to keep the deer from outlining my silhouette...  O0

it sound like everybodt stays around the same, except for the no fear crazy guy that climbs 70ft.  i'd have to find a different spot thats to high for me or at least keep looking on the other side were it's level.  i'm like stoney try to get about 20ft and have a good back stop or make it so the sun is in the deers eyes if it happens to look up.  what about some achery stand tips do you guys got any??

tip#5, don't forget you're up in a tree after you shoot a nice buck..... :roll: 

I am telling you this from experience....   :shock:   Yup, I walked right out of my tree stand after I shot a nice buck.   To this day I keep asking myself - "WHAT WAS I THINKING"      :twisted:
