I have stands ranging from 12 to 18 feet and I almost will not hunt the ones under 15 feet, but today I hung a new one at 18 and I forgot how high that really seems in a small portable. At least it is has a good climbing stick up to it but those stands seem so small when you get on them. In the future when I put one over 15 feet I am going to buy some bigger platforms. How high do you like to be?

Yeah, but I think heights and age don't go together.

The older I get the less 20 foot appeals to me. I know I get busted about every time under 15 but I only have about 2 stands that low. I build most of my own. I have alot of ladders that I have built myself.
I killed a doe on the ground this year and I loved it. It was really windy that day and I figured I could get away with a little more movement and I called it spot on. I shot her at 23yrds broadside. It was kinda like shooting at a 3D target. I was really pumped up about that one.
