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.
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.
