I have set two stands in one tree for shooting a video hunt. Most any lock on stands will work for this situation. I was able to in many cases go up the same tree with one set of climbing sticks, one stand stepping left off the top of the sticks, one stand stepping off the right of the sticks at the top. Both stands can be at the same level, but I have found that while shooting a video it is easier to see whats happening to get the deer and hunter in the various shot angles if you are above the hunters stand level. Another option for you to look into is using climbing stands. I have used OL'Man Tree Stands for several years now, and I love the Drone climbing stand for its versatility while in the tree. Big platform to stand on, comfortable foot rest for the hunter, steady gun rest for recording a video without shaking, and it has turnbuckle style adjustment for the foot and seat platform to adjust the angle to be most comfortable. Very nice feature for leaning trees. Good luck, be safe, and have fun with your son this season!
