What is the best height for a deer stand?
The benchmark can be anywhere from 20 feet to 100 feet. This will get you up high enough to be out of sight for any deer in the area and is not so high that a hunter feels unsafe climbing to and getting into the stand.

There is a list of materials, cutting instructions, and information on putting the top and bottom levels together in the 5 part game. Depending on where you get your materials, you can expect to pay $150 for this deer stand.
How many deer should be on 100 acres?
What’s the best deer density on my property? 20 to 30 acres per deer is a relatively safe goal to start out with, even though there are a lot of variables that determine the optimal deer density.
How long before dark should you get in deer stand?
Leaving the truck a solid 2 hours before shooting light is one way to make sure you are ready to go. This gives you time to cool off after a long hike, get your gear ready, and let the woods settle back down before the sun comes up.
How long before daylight should I be in my deer stand?
If I am only hunting the afternoon hours during the rut, I try to settle in 4 to 6 hours before dark if I am hunting a heavily wooded cruising location, and close to 3 to 4 hours prior to dark if I am looking for a food source.
How do I keep my feet warm in a deer stand?
Cotton is fine if you want to walk to the stand. The cotton socks on your feet absorb a lot of the sweat from your feet. Pack your wool and socks in a gallon-size bag before you leave. The bag should be sealed when the air is pushed out.
What makes a good deer stand?
Sturdy, safe, and with a flat base, a stand is a good choice. I don’t expect anything else. Even though there is a higher chance that deer will seek out this dense cover, we will have poor visibility and poor range.
How many deer will a 1 acre food plot support?
If we are an average food plot, we can feed about 9 deer per acre. In areas with bigger deer, you wouldn’t feed them as much. You can feed as many as 12 deer per acre in areas of the south with smaller body weights.

How do you lock a tripod in place?
All sections need to be extended. If you have 4 segment legs, you need to tighten the smallest leg lock. When setting the tripod down, you can gently push down the legs until they are vertical and level.
