      Another vote for at least 15 feet. All of our ladder stands are this height, and depending on the tree I tend to go a bit higher when using my climber. I've found the additional height does help, although its equally if not more important to position yourself among tree limbs or (ideally) on a tree that has 2-3 trunks, which helps to break up your outline and enhances safety. To the last point, never use a climber without a good safety harness!

        I agree with Steve in Virginia - wear a good safety harness - and I would add that you should try a practice self-rescue with the harness while having some assistants available to rescue you if things don't go as planned. It can be more difficult than you think.
