sounds like your trees have a higher metal to wood ratio than most. [;)]

Stands are like money, sex, and horsepower....you can never have too much!

 
I couldn't have said it better myself!
Put me on a mountain, way back in the backwoods
Put me on a lake with biggin' on the line
Put me around a campfire cookin' something I just cleaned

The only way I'd ever feel I had too many stands is if I couldn't hunt in each one at least one time during a season. That will never be a problem for me.

We have 22 sets spread over 3 places that add up to 130 acres and always have a climber and some lock-ins ready to go if needed. I think you could get away with more if you have the timber. In my opinion, the more options you have for different winds the better.


Couldn't agree more.  I have some sets that are no more than 20 or 30 yards from each other, mainly for different wind directions, travel patterns, etc.  You never can have too many as long as you don't over-hunt any of them!  Best of luck!

You should be able to go from stand to stand with out leaving the trees. Just step from one stand to the other!

Does wonders for keeping your scent off the ground! [;)]
