Guns should be pulled from the ground while you are in a comfortable, seated position with the harness mounted.
The Summit Treestands Crush Series Solo Pro Ladder Stand comes with a compact design which is perfect for solo hunters. If you want to ensure the best practicality of the stand you will need to mount it together with the seat and the gun rest. These can act to improve your comfort but also as shooting platforms.
