A couple of years ago I purchased the perfect archery ladder stand made by River's Edge. Perfect because it had a standing platform that extended to the base of the tree AND a flip-up seat with no arm rests or shooting rails. (It was also affordable.) This arrangement is critical to bow hunters who want to be able to stand up tight to the tree for long periods of time, and not have interference of movement.
I can no longer find any stands like it. Everything now is made for rifle hunting exclusively from a seated position, or giant two-man affairs, almost useless if you shoot a bow. Any ideas?
