I don't hunt from tree stands because where I live there are no trees big enough to hang a stand. I do however, hunt from deer blinds we have built. It depends on the terrain and ground cover on whether or not you need elevation. Here the terrain is basically flat with a few draws and creekbeds. I hunt over plowed fields from an atv or ground blind. When the ground cover, like CRP, is mature and tall, I usually set up in one of my deer blinds. That gives me about 8' of elevation and really allows me a great field of view.

I like to keep all the options open. Usually hunt from the ground, but on one particular occasion where we called and had howls & barks but "no show" we backed out and went back a few days later w/climbers. Got up in the air, called in two and got one. Hunting in Maine, it's sometimes advantageous to get up in a tree to increase visibility. To each his own...
