I voted hang-on because I use it about 90% of my hunts.

100% hang on here. A lot of the places I hunt don't have suitable trees for a climber.

It depends on my situation. I have a Viper that I use most of the time but I also use a loc on and ladder stands. I will soon be getting a web also.
If it's a spot that's easy to get to and I'm pretty confident it won't be stolen then I will leave a ladder.
If it's kind of difficult to get to and I want to leave it there for a while I'll use a loc on.
I never leave my Viper in the woods. It's my favorite stand.

I use a Loc On Limit 99% of the time. Every once in a while I'll find a hot spot where the only tree to climb is a pine. Then I'll pull out my Summit Bushmaster.

Chris you using one of the old 5lbs Limits or one of the new ones?

I was a die hard Summit Bushmaster user until last year when Mr. Warren turn me onto the Loc-on Limit. I only used the Bushmaster twice last year for all day hunts, & decide it was just too much trouble to pack deep. I just sold it a couple months ago & got a Guido's Web for my all day sits this year.

Yeah, I have one of the old ones. I also have an old Windwalker that is smaller and lighter than the Limit. I just prefer the Limit since it has a little bit more leg room.

I've killed alot of deer out of my Bushmaster, but over the last few years I find myself using it less and less.

I first spoke with Warren back in 2008 and then met him on a hunt later that fall. Since then I've learned alot from him. He's really influenced the way I hunt. I'm proud to call him my friend.

I've been keeping my eye open for one of the older models.

Mr Warren is a top notch guy & a deer killin machine. Lucky for me he lives about an hour from me & I get to visit him often. I have learn more from him in the last yr than I have in my previous 25 yrs of hunting. Like you I'm glad to call him a friend.

My XOP Strike Force is awesome for our bottom land hardwoods and it sticks to the pines like white on rice.

I made an all day sit this year in it. Didn't see a thing. As for comfort, it wasn't bad, the mental fatigue of an uneventful day was hard to cope with...

Mostly a ground hunter now, but this year when I did hunt from a tree I used my homemade tree saddle, and I used it with a strap on rapid rail ladder section as a climber (like CBigBear does in his video) So I guess that falls under like 4 different answers in this poll LOL
