We have a couple of the 10 foot tall shooting towers with the blinds on top. Not quite a tri-pod, but similar.
Not the best for bow hunting, but OK for gun hunting and the blinds provide protection from the wind/rain.
I'd prefer taller than 10 feet. I haven't seen any tripods that go as high as 20 feet, 13-15 would probably be plenty in the area I hunt.
I'm considering a tripod as well - looking for something with a decent sized platform so I can stand when I shoot my bow. Just don't like to do it sitting down, nor do I practice enough with it that way to be ethical with a shot.
