I have 2 similar I got from Wally world. My son and I hunt out of it. For the price not a bad stand. Rail is a little high for my son to rest his gun on when shooting.

I've hunted out of the double ladders from Wal-mart for as long as I can remember. They're not real comfortable but they last for a long time and are plenty big. For the price you can't really beat them.

A friend ordered one. It had the platform support holes drilled in the wrong place, had to do a little afro-engineering to get it right but it works fine.

GT has quite a few of their lock ons.

They've held up quite well over the past few years.

I got a few stands from Sportsman Guide, they are holding up great - just have to re-paint them after a couple of years, the bolts will rust quickly (Cabelas stands do the same)

I'm thinking of adding another hang on $45.00 on sale today

is that the one me and quakergirl hunted? if so...it's a bit narrow IMO...but not unhuntable. If it were a hot day we'd have been uncomfortable.

Default get it BR

I hunted out of one like it with Hunter a few years 'til he started using the climber..They aren't too bad, but not real good either.... just ok for the money I guess.

I don't think you could get two boat seats across on it, but those little stadium seats make them more comfortable... They have another for 139 that has the back rest that might sit better.....

if it's just for you, one manladders are more comfortable

I got it yesterday and put the top part together, is not bad at all, the seat cushion is a joke, bout 1" thick, with a small boat seat it will be fine. I like the fold up front rail, will make it eaiser to get in and out. It also makes a nice front porch seat.
