I have hang on's, climbers and ladder stands. I use them all depending on the situation.
When I take my wife or daughter I put the ladder stand up and connect a lock on stand right next to it. I climb up first and get on the lock on, then they come up and stay on the ladder platform. Can't beat a climber for the ability to move locations anytime.

I have all 3 also, plus more than a dozen permanent stands. They all serve their purpose. If I were to have one stand it would be the light weight hang on Thumbs up

I have all three, I really dont like ladder stands, I sit to far away from the tree, and I feel that if I can see them easily, so can the deer Although I feel safer having my wife in the ladder stand. I like hangers because you can put them in trees that have branches hanging out below you, and get some great cover. I like my climber because I can get into new locations without the hassle of hanging a stand, and steps or ladders, and it give me opertunity to hunt different locations while still scouting. The thing that I don't like about my climber, is that if I need to get down quick such as see a deer in the distance that I want to stalk, it is not easy to get down, and sometimes kinda noisy

I use my Summit Viper stand whenever I can. I love the fact that I can go wherever the deer sign leads me. I always carry my Gerber all-purpose saw for any limbs that I may need to remove.

We also use permanent stands in Missouri for rifle season. They are large enough to sit 2 people in, so it's a great place to take our kids hunting. Thumbs up
