Not have any trees available for a conventional tree stand, but not committed enough to the spot for a tower stand? Check out the T100 and T360 Tripod stands, from Millennium. First popularized in the South Texas brush country, tripod stands are self-supporting and can be set up almost anywhere the ground is level. The stands are perfect for allowing hunters to peer over a brushline, and get above the eyesight of game, with seats that permit the hunter to rotate a full 360-degrees.
The aluminum T100 stand is a 10-foot Ultralight Tripod, weighing only 36-pounds combined. It can also be set up in under a minute, with a little practice. Each leg of the tripod also has a foot rest, allowing the hunter to easily turn the seat any direction, and to stop wherever. Finally, an optional four-foot height extension can raise the stand from ten to fourteen feet, for when low cover and silhouetting is not a concern.
The T360, meanwhile, is a 16-foot stand, boasting a powder-coat finish, a padded shooting rail and a camouflage skirt with two gear pockets. One leg is adjustable for uneven terrain leveling, the seat accepts Revolution-series accessories, and an extra-large ladder provides more stable footing. This stand weighs in at a stout 155.8 pounds.
