Big Game Treestands The Big Buddy ladderstand | CR4800 Review:
This 16 foot, 2 person ladderstand is another industry leader from Big Game. It is easy to assemble and provides a slightly larger platform base than the CR4800. This tree stand can be used on trees of any size, although the bigger the tree, the more solid the stand will be. I have used this stand on many tree sizes and the stand is solid. The shooting rest is great. I take it off for bow hunting, but put it back on for muzzleloader season. I have used this stand by myself and with another person. It is more snug with 2 people, but there is plenty of room. It assembles pretty easily and straight forward. It is a little difficult or tricky to "walk up" after assembly on the ground. With 2 people, it is a piece of cake. Another great product from Big Game.
Make sure to solidly attach to the tree. Stays in place quite well. I turned the gun rest upside down for bow hunting and the bar was out of the way, yet still provided some safety and a good "lean" rest for my leg when shooting.
