Climber is not an option?? I used a Lone Wolf Alpha last week and WOW!! I could of sat all day. They are about $329.00 though. In a desperation for a climber I bought the Gorilla Wolverine from Wal-Mart for $75.00 on sale. The same stand was $150.00 at Gander ON SALE. It is no comparison to the Lone Wolf but man is it comfortabel and it climbs with ease! For the price it is awesome. Hopefully you can go to a climber, that is the way to go.

They are pricy but I love my Lone Wolf hang on. I also use the Lone Wolf climbing sticks.

Rivers Edge Big Foot XL - Very Comfortable, relatively easy to hang and it has a big platform.

I already have a summit cliber that I use for public land, ripley etc... This stand will be on private land that I can keep up year round. I am not worried about ease of hanging. but comfort. Gander has some guide series that look nice, and I have also looked at the Rivers edge. Is there something else I should be looking at. Are the lone wolfs comfortable? or are they all in the ease of hang.

If you're looking for top quality and all day comfort, get the Millenium M-100 hang on stand. You won't find a more comfortable, easy to hang tand. All day sits are no problem. I can't believe how fast the time goes when I'm sitting in this stand. It's like sitting in a super comfy lawn chair.

I'll second the Alpha hang-on by Lone Wolf... expensive but worth every penny.

I have both the Lone Wolf Alpha and the Lone Wolf Millenium. The millenium is a more comfortable stand and roomier. I fold the seat back down to double up the cushion for the toosh. I feel any of the Lone Wolf stands will be extremly quiet and I feel are the best hang-on out there right now. (But I'm always on the lookout for a better mouse trap!)

I was at Cabella's last week and they had a stand that was super comfortable. It had a black mesh seat that was much like a lawn chair. Definitley an all day sit type stand. I was considering it, but preferred a tad bigger platform.

My original intention was a Loggy Bayou Monarch XL - pro staff, but I questioned the foot rest quality and the bar under the padding of the seat seemed it would dig into the back of my legs by the end of the day.

Good Luck!

I have both the lone wolf hang-on and lone wolf sit and climb. /first time using the sit and climb I shot a doe. very comfortably once you get situated right, took me a few times to figure out what exactly to do but now I am up that tree so quick. The hang-on I have is the first hang-on I ever bought and couldn't be happier. rock solid once its on the tree. one gripe about it is the seat is a little too small but I think an aftermarket foam cushion might help that.

NO CHAINS! Unless you are prehanging before the season. No matter how hard you try, you can't avoid making unnatural noises while putting up/taking down.

It took me three years before I sprung for a Lone Wolf Alpha, but as a mobile hunter, there is nothing better! I have 5 other stands of various makes and models, but the Lone Wolf goes with me everywhere! cool.gif

$180 at Cabela's.

I own 6 portables, 3 are ladders, 2 hang-ons, & 1 climber. None of them cost more that $100. They aren't the most comfortable, but I usually don't sit more than 3-4 hours at a time & having more stands is the key for me. I almost exclusively hunt private land though, but I've put up my $50 chain on portable, climbed in the stand, & seen deer the same night.

I like my River's Edge for the price, but I wish it had a better pad. I could feel the crossbars through the pad.

My Lone Wolf Alpha is my new favorite. I can sit for 5-6hrs easily. You can adjust the angel of the platform and for the seat so you are always level or if you like to lean back you can do that too. I find a tree with a backwards lean and set up. Now I'm in a recliner!!

Its also super quiet, user-friendly and light!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
