The higher level archer

It’s the Higher Level, and performs levels above any other cable-style climbing Tree Stand. You don’t have to begin your ascent at a steep incline anymore!

Other Climbing Tree Stands require the hunter to judge how high he plans to hunt and then determine just how much smaller that tree is at that height so he can mount his climbing tree stand on the base of the tree with sufficient angle to end up level when he reaches hunting altitude. Impossible? No, of course not, we’ve all done it but when hunters need to be mobile, going to new trees can present some difficult judgment calls. How high do you want to climb? Will there be a branch in my shooting lane? Will I need 5 more feet when I get up there? With the Higher Level Climbing Tree Stand it’s no problem at all. Just level yourself as you climb.

self-leveling climbing tree stand

We’ve all been there before… you’ve just climbed twenty feet and your foot platform is already sloping downward at five degrees. “No worries” we say! It’s only an evening hunt and you can be ‘out-of-level’ for a few hours. Then it begins to rain. Each time you stand up the foot platform gets a little more slippery. Now you’re wishing you hadn’t gone that four more feet after passing level.

Never hunt from a climbing tree stand that is not level! All climbing tree stands rely on the physical properties of the device design to stay put on the tree, and that means being LEVEL. All climbing tree stands are designed to be used at LEVEL, thus creating the safest elevated platform from which to hunt.

Higher Level Climbing Tree Stands make it possible for the hunter to be level at all times. While climbing, while hunting, and while descending the tree! Simply shift all your weight off the platform you wish to level before cranking the gear-box crank handle. If you need to hunt higher, just crank slightly above level, and continue your ascent. The self-leveling adjustment allows mobility like no other mobile tree stand. You can hunt higher than other stands because you have much more ability to accommodate the reduction in diameter of the tree as you go up.

Safe, reliable, and stable platforms

Our Climbing Tree Stand comes with the ultimate in Stand Safety and Stability. The Stand Stabilizing Straps keep you in contact with the lower platform while climbing so if you lose control and drop that platform with your feet; the stand stabilizer straps retain the platform like a lanyard for you to  regain control! When you reach hunting altitude, simply bind the two straps down tight and they feel as if they were bolted into the tree.

    I’ve been using climbing treestands since the 80’s, and have used many different brands. The Higher Level Stand is by far the BEST stand I have ever used. The adjustability is a fantastic component of the stand. You no longer have to have your face planted to the tree when you start your ascent. Really great in colder weather when you have more clothing on. Adjusts simply by turning the cranks that are mounted on the rails. As far as safety goes, when you get to your desired hunting level, cinch the safety straps, and you are not going anywhere. Packs easily also for carrying purposes. I also have the optional back rest that I use mainly for gun hunting. Problem is, you can easily fall asleep in this stand, and miss seeing that big buck. I know I have. I would recommend this stand to anyone looking at purchasing a climber. My wishes have finally come true. A company that put all the pieces together to make an adjustable, safe, and quality made stand!

    First thing I have to say is the customer service and support is beyond what I would expect from any company. Rocky (the owner) answered all my questions about the use and operation of his Higher Level Stand. I have used many stands over the years but this one tops them all. By trade I am a welder, so when I got my hands on his 21.5 Archer Model I was very impressed with the quality and craftsmanship. I also have his mesh style seat, the regular seat is good but I like the weight savings his mesh seat gives me. I also talked to him about the ability to get around larger trees in which he offered the larger cables from the 24″ Magnum model as an upgrade, try getting another manufacture to offer that type of service (not going to happen). Basically I received a customized stand for myself. Great stand and customer support. Thank you
