Top 2018 Treestands & Blinds

Having a successful hunt starts with choosing quality equipment. If you want to upgrade your treestand or ground blind, consider these options for 2018.

Summit

Summit Dual Pro

The Dual Pro is a two-person all-steel ladder stand that can be converted to an open-top platform by flipping up the bench seat. That seat features a thick, comfortable cushion to keep you on the stand longer, and the brown powder-coat finish provides weather protection for years of use. The stand weighs 88 pounds and has a weight capacity of 350 pounds for one hunter or two persons at 250 pounds each. summitstands.com

Muddy

Muddy Boss Elite AL

The Boss Elite AL features a textured, weather-resistant finish for increased lifespan and improved footing. Its spacious platform is 20” wide and 37” deep, providing ample room and comfort for longer sits. The Flex-Tek bucket seat is rock solid and extremely comfortable. Nylon washers, spacers and silencer caps reduce metal noise and prevent unwanted clanking. The stand weighs 20 pounds and has a 300-pound capacity. gomuddy.com

Wild Edge

Wild Edge SteppLadder

The SteppLadder climbing system is one of the fastest, easiest and lightest ways to climb a tree. Each compact, stackable step is powder-coated and fitted with a durable polypropylene attachment cord. To attach, use a simple loop (as pictured on the carry bag), and then cam the step tight against the tree. A set of 10 steps weighs under 10 pounds and lets you climb to 20 feet. Plus, they’re designed for legal use on public land and have a weight capacity of 350 pounds. wildedgeinc.com

Millennium

Millennium M250 Steps

M250 aluminum climbing sticks are lightweight and versatile. They’re designed for use on any tree, crooked or otherwise. They weigh 2.6 pounds each and can be purchased individually or in packs of four. A nice touch is that each step is angled and grooved for greater foot clearance and grip. Double-loop connection straps with easy pull cam-buckle straps make installing a breeze. millenniumstands.com

Redneck

Redneck Ghillie Soft-Side

The Ghillie Soft-Side blind blends into any landscape. It measures 6x6’ and features both horizontal and vertical windows to accommodate gun hunters and bowhunters.
