    Hang On Stand

    Here is a hang on stand that I built recently. I've still gotta paint it and weld caps on the ends, to keep the wasps out.

    Tree's here in Hawaii have little or no bark as you can see, so climbing stands are prone to slip down the tree..... So
    Here's one of my many ladderstand, this one's been in use 2 yrs now

    12' to the platform, course you could use 14' 2X4s to if ya wanted higher up.



    Blends in well



    simple turn buckle and chain holds it very secure. I have a trophy chair I use sometimes if the plywood gets too hard for a all day sit.
    A slow hit is much better,than a fast miss !

    I finally got enough time to weld caps on the ends (to keep wasp out) and get it painted.

    Does any of you over there have any plans or suggestions for such a type of tree stand.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    here is how it reads in the catalog

    I did not see this thread when I posted mine. I think my stand and barehunters climbing sticks would take top prize for design and comfort if it were a contest.

    Been building permanent metal stands for nearly 10 years, have about 15 set up. Most are 3' X 4' angle frames with expanded metal floors. Some have ladders others individual steps. We like them big enough to hold two people (adult & youngster). Cost around $40-$50 in materials per stand. Swivel seats are removable, hardly any maintenance required.

    I posted this one on another thread. I wanted a very sturdy stand with plenty of room for me and my son/s. I also wanted it to have higher than normal sides because I will be putting it over a crp field where long shots are a definite possibility. I didn't see anything like I wanted, and the prices of most were way too much. I have less than $100 in material in this stand, and I KNOW it will stand the test of time.

    Bonecrusher, very nice. That's what I wanted, a stand I could rely on for years to come. I used 14 gauge. It's heavy, but it's what I wanted.

    Wood stand

    Here's one of my favorite treestands. It is made out of 2x8 legs that support the platform. The platform is 3-1/2' x 4' with a shooting rail all the way around. I since added camo burlap to hide my two boys movement. I have had them it the stand with me several times when we have shot deer ( i'm not always the shooter) . We go thru the trap door and close once in. I also made another stand using 2x6 uprights and it works just as good. The other picture is my feeder that I also made. I used conduit to weld a frame for a 12.5 gallon bucket to set in. I used fence post pipe to elivate the feeder. I bought an American feeder broadcast motor to mount to the bottom with the solar panel to charge the 6 volt battery. I also added the critter zapper so the coon and tree rats won't steel the corn. I works great. I found the bucket at a pool store. They get them in from the shock mfg companies. They gave me this one. The feeder is set 20 yards away from the stand. I never seen any deer under the feeder when I have been hunting. What do you think?

    My homebrew stands are a foldable 16 lb stand that I have used for about 7 yrs. I make about 8 per yr. The bottom frame is made of 3/4 in conduit which I bend to the shape that is in the photo. A comfortable foot rest is my favorite part....expandable metal bottom is welded at all contact points and does not make any noise. The uprights are made at 22 inches (I am 6 ft) ... when seated my hips are slightly higher than my knees which takes pressure off the bad knee I have. The seat frame is made of the same conduit and the netting is "Tennis Net". Of the 8 I make a yr they all seem to make it to any number of "Buddies" that always seem to need one more stand. There best feature is comfort for that day you need to be out there all day.

    How much you charge a guy to build about 10 sets of sticks?? I am always needing sticks, possibly some stands even. I live about an hour from you btw. I am in Springfield atleast 2 times a week for school normally more though.

    Martial Archer, Very nice. I have been wanting to build some similar. Your seat is similar to my lock on. I think I am going to build one like this but with a slightly larger platform and a swivel seat. I will also make the lower part like a stick ladder with about 5 removable steps. It should be the ultimate bow stand. Comfortable , Safe, and any idiot that finds it cannot climb up without my steps, making it very hard to hunt out of or steal.
