Big Game Treestands Stealth Deluxe Ladder Stand
We like them enough to keep buying more
There are more expensive stands and there are cheaper stands out there.
We won't consider any of the cheaper stands because they lack a shooting rail that also adds a bit of protection from falls.
The more expensive ladder stands have a larger foot platform and generally have a more comfortable seat.
These are plenty comfortable enough, we also have some Big Game Warrior Deluxe stands and they have a different seat and they are comfortable enough too. We normally don't stay in a stand for longer than four hours at a time and come down and still hunt or take a siesta mid-day before going back into a stand in the afternoon for the evening, but if I am going to be up in one all day I have had my mom make some 1.5 inch memory foam cushions that we take up withe us.
This is important: Make sure to take time to place the stand so that the seat is level from side to side and angles just slightly back towards the tree. Not a lot, just a little bit. This will make it much more comfortable for long sits, having the seat not level side to side will kill your back after a few hours.
Take a garden ax (Mattock) with you to dig around to get the legs just right so that the seat is nice and comfy and the whole ladder stand is solidly supported.
Add a twenty foot piece of 1/8" nylon cord to haul guns and equipment up with.

Big Game Ladder Stand
This is a good stand and a great price. Shooting rail is very nice to have and you can put a blind around it if you want.
