treelounge treestand

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there use the tree lounge treestand?

just wondering what your experiances were with them, or what you have heard about them, are they worth the $$ or would like a summit stand be a better bang for you buck, Was thinking about purchasing one but would like your guys's input before i spend the 320 bucks on one.

any input would be greatly appreciated.

back when those treelounge stands came out i loved the idea. didnt have the money to by one, so i made one out of 2by4's. i love it i wish i would have made it alittle bigger cause now that i have grown about 5 inches sence i made it i am almost grown out of it. have used it for about 5 or 6 years now. i love it i can move around in it it doesnt slip down the tree or make any noises. think i will be makin a couple more.

I have seen the videos and always wanted to try. They look super comfortable. I did hear that thye were a little on the heavy side, though.

i have never seen one besides the one i built. but makin it out of wood sure adds alot of weigh. but yes it is super comfortable the last deer i shot i was sleepin and woke up and this nice 8 pointer was about 200 yards out for his last meal smile.gif

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
