This will be my first year hunting from a saddle. I hunt mostly private land with short walks (<1/2 mile) to my stand sights. I have several sets of stackable stick ladders that I plan to use for presets to start the season. I've tried other climbing methods, but decided on the stick ladders. No further than I walk, their extra weight is not a problem, and I can move them quickly and easily as needed. Some sets have the "T" step on the top that I can use as my platform, but other sets do not. I have a couple of ideas for a portable platform that I can move from spot to spot attaching it to the top of the sticks that don't have the "T" step, but I'm curious if anyone else is using stick ladders, what are you using for your platform?
