Top 3 Qualities to Look For in a Ladder Stand , Garfield, Michigan

Ladder stands, or treestands, as they're often called, are a special type of equipment for hunters. Ladder stands are secured on trees, allowing hunters to climb up a tree and lay in wait for their target. They've become increasingly popular in recent years, as sportsmen seek new, inventive ways to get an edge on their forest prey. Hurricane Safety Systems, LLC in Traverse City, MI, shares the most important qualities to look for in a ladder stand. 

What a Ladder Stand Should Have

1. Grip

Your ladder stand needs to support your weight for hours at a time. You want to make sure it's secured firmly to the tree for your protection and to keep yourself quiet. Look for a stand that easily supports your weight while making minimal noise. 

2. Height

3. Ease of Use

Hunters don't always stay in the same place for an entire day. They need to stay mobile in case signs point to a better area in the woods to hunt. Because of this, you want a ladder stand that you can easily attach and remove. You may be fastening it to multiple trees during each hunting outing.
