The setup was similar where i was using it... There were young pines and we were just hunting the firebreak/roads with it. Couple stretches of road where you could see 100 yards before it made a bend. But this was also were deer tended to cross the road due to terrain. Put this stand downwind and tried to catch bucks chasing does in the pines.... which would ultimately lead to them crossing the road. Worked. Saw a lot of deer just better be ready to shoot when you see a doe cross. I carried it in on top of a Ranger dropped it and drove on off another couple hundred yards, came back and got in the stand.
