Curious to see what tree stands you are using for your whitetail hunts. I have been using Rivers Edge Bigfoots for years and looking to upgrade. Bigfoots are good but can be noisy in certain trees.

I love the new summits either the backcountry hang ons from last year or the new featherweight switch from this year. Very quiet.

Family Traditions is the best, well made stand I've used. Made in USA, powder coated, welded, best I've found so far.

Chippewa Wedge Locs!! Hands down the whitest I have used! I have not tried the new ones as I own 4 of the older ones!! Shawn

Lone wolf assault. I use the ez hook. Makes hanging it a little easier and quieter.

The ones you sit or stand still on.

Lone Wolf are good, but XOP is better. Lone wolf has a cast stand, but still have tubular seat post. XOP has a cast stand as well as seat post, so all structure is 100% cast. Quiet as they come.

Wedge loks are excellent stands.

Lone Wolf and XOP are solid in this category for being silent and rock solid

Lone Wolf with EZ Hook - hang and hunt almost every sit - deadly quiet.

Agree with the LW system. I hunt with an Alpha and sticks and it is quiet if I'm careful with the stand buckles. The ex hang hook would be quieter for sure.

I use both the LW Alpha and XOP stands. I prefer the XOP sticks as they have slightly longer step pads. I put safety over a slight weight differential. Being 61 and with winter foot wear the longer steps feel safer. I tried Heliums this year. Really light, but will only use them with lighter foot wear as the steps seem to be the shortest of the three.

I've been getting these 3 or 4 so far. Neighbor got a couple also. We were getting real good deals on them at Amazon.

They have a unique, hitch to receiver way to hang in the tree. All aluminum and hold fat boys up to 350lbs.

Been using lone wolf since Andre first made them. Agree with Adam and now buy xop. Just discovered a flaw in the XOP. Bears eat those great seats.
