Hey guys, this is Tony from Florida. I purchased my skunk ape tree stand just before the 2018 deer season began. I purchased the tree stand in the hopes of my nine year old daughter harvesting her first deer. As you can see in the picture we didn’t wait long. The versatility of the skunk ape tree stand allows for a 360 degree angle and no room for an excuse not to get the job done. The child lock on an attachment allowed for the child to easily have the same angle with the use of the rails for a slow and steady shot. This was the third time that we used the tree stand and completed our task with absolutely no hiccups. I would highly recommend the Skunk Ape Tree Stand to anyone with a youth hunter or the single hunter. I bow hunt out of this tree stand during archery and with the quick and easy rail removal it allows for a comfortable 360-degree seated shot. I give this product five stars.

My buddy Tim told me about your stands and I bought two of them. He picked them up at your warehouse not knowing he was getting one for Christmas. He was surprised. We love the flexibility of the stand to hunt 360 degrees. He takes his daughter with him to hunt with the extra seat too. Thanks guys, it’s awesome!

Trey Shoemaker: Appling County, Georgia
I used my Skunk Ape Tree Stand for the first time this past weekend and it was, by far, the best tree stand that I have ever used. It was like hunting in my La-Z-Boy at 25 feet. I really like how it is designed. It is quite a sound structure. I especially like padded shooting rails which are the perfect height and that helps me steady my rifle and get a perfect shot off. I can’t wait to climb in to my Skunk Ape Tree Stand again.

IMB Outfitters and Skunk Ape Tree Stands
We purchased several dozen of the Skunk Ape Tree Stands this past Fall. Our clients loved them, both archery and gun alike. I took this 164 inch Missouri Monster out of one of our Skunk Ape Tree Stands. They are very comfortable, have lots of room, are safe, secure, etc. etc. We love our Skunk Ape Tree stands here at IMB Outfitters with deer hunts in the Midwest.

A True 20′ High Stand
I have had my stand up for about two months now and although I have not hunted out of it, I love it. This is a true 20′ high stand, for a tree stand this one is high. Very comfortable to sit in (I will have to use the seat belt because I might fall asleep). I like facing the tree because I faced the stand toward the area I expect the deer to appear and I will be concealed by the tree in front of me. Assembly is not bad, only problem I had was with the side floor panels, they have a support brace that I had a hard time lining up bolt holes. Watch the video on assembly and it will go together easy. Once up the stand is firm and secure. I plan to get my second stand if they can get it to me in time for this season.

This stand is excellent
This stand is excellent. The quality is very good. I love the design especially the swivel seat that is extremely quiet when moving. This stand changed my opinion on tree stands as I was never a fan of having the tree to my back and not being able to see behind me. I did hang a blind down off of the shooting rail which worked out great and allowed me to move around without being seen. My hunting club guys are all jealous!
