I like my feet to be at 20ft so my bow is about 25ft up.

love being up high. 25 at the lowest and 30 at the highest.

High as I can in a given spot. Prefer 20 - 30' but sometimes 10 - 15'. I have spots where I could go 60' or so but 20 yd shots feel almost straight down that high up and that's not my preference.

It depends on the location and cover. Most of my stands are 22' to 24' but I have one that is a little over 30', I don't usually go that high but was the only decent spot for me to get a stand in.

18-25' depending on cover

Seems like I remember Skeet saying he climbs until his nose starts bleeding, and then comes back down two feet.

I'm bout 20 feet. I've been told that if you go much higher than that it can throw your shot off... How true is this???

If wide open area I go 30 feet and like that height. If in a cluster of other trees with great cover the 15-20 works fine.

I cut my pull ropes to 16 feet. I climb until I pull my the top of my bow 1 ft up off the ground. Seat height roughly at 17-18 feet. I have had 6 deer walk under me and shot 1 of them, in 3 sits so far in light timber.

I am usually at 20' unless available cover is lower. I try to stay the same height so my sight picture is always the same. Hard to do on hillsides though.

50 to 60 feet...or wherever the best available cover is, could be 8 foot, could be 20. Also depends on the stand I am in. Over 20 feels dicey in a LW Assault on a windy day. Not so much in a bigger stand.

Depending on area I'm either 15' up to 30' I love to hunt out of hemlock trees in Michigan...most of those stands are less than 20'. You can hide really well in those trees.
