    Stand Placement

    I'm in a lease with 5 people and today was approached by 2 of them about putting more ladder stands up. I've always been told that get them up early and let the deer get use to them. Now the season has started and we have some good activity in this one area I don't not want to do it. What is everyones thoughts?

    I don't see a problem if you are going in and putting up a stand. If you are cutting trails and doing a weeks worth of work then you may have a problem. Sneaking in and popping a couple of stands up are no problem and much better than trying to hunt the area on the ground. The little bit of noise putting up the stand is far better than being detected on the ground.

    I actually put up one of my ladder stands on October 13'th, there was five of us and we all had ATV's. I just checked my game camera on Saturday, October 20'th and I had deer on the cam October 14'th. This is proof to me that popping up a ladder stand will not keep them away.

    I always like to get my stands put up in August/September so I have them up with lots of time to not disturb the area before hunting season.

    I think it depends on the area you hunt in as well.
    For example, I hunt in an area that has a lot of pioneer species hardwoods and underbrush which means that there are still a lot of leaves on the trees in August and September.
    This makes it very difficult to find proper stand placement.
