Are Tripod Deer Stands Safe? Yes, tripod deer are safe if you should consider some certain factors. First, they are easy to get in and out. The best thing about them is that they are stable, unmovable, and have a comfortable seat that swivels you to all direction.
At any rate, how do you anchor a deer stand tripod?
From everywhere, where is the best place to put a deer stand?
Consider hanging your stand on the backside of the tree that is along the trail you want to hunt. Stand in your tree stand facing the tree keeping an eye on the trails in front of you. This will allow you to hide behind the tree above the deer while still giving you shot opportunities.

Millennium Treestands T-100 Tripod, 10 ft
ULTRALITE TRIPOD: The Millennium T-100 Tripod is designed by hunters for hunters. The lightweight tripod sets up in under a minute. The most comfortable and hunter friendly tripod in the industry and it meets or exceeds TMA industry standards.
360-DEGREE SEAT: The ComfortMAX seat swivels 360 degrees, with the footrest turning with the seat. Footstands on the tripod make turning and stopping the seat fluid and unobtrusive. You’ll have the view you need to take that shot.
10-FOOT HEIGHT: The T-100 tripod features an eye height of 10-feet. An effective height in low covered areas without sky-lighting yourself. At 10-feet with a 360-degree view, your chances of bagging a deer are greatly increased.
SMART CONSTRUCTION: The aluminum construction features a durable powder coat finish offering years of reliable service. Also featured are non-sink, no-slip feet and large easy to climb sure-footed steps. Designed to easily fold for transportation.
MEASUREMENTS: Built to hold up to 300-pounds. The platform measures 20-inches wide and 17-inches deep. Weighs 36-pounds. The T-100 offers comfortable, quiet, and easy setup. An optional 4 ft. extension (T103) is available.
To do this, use either your camera bag, a water bag, or a net bag that can be filled with rocks/sand, and suspend it from the center column so that it tensions the tripod, yet also makes contact with the ground----otherwise you'll get a pendulum effect under the column which defeats the whole purpose.
Often times 20 feet is the benchmark. This will get you up high enough to be out of direct line of sight for any deer in the area and is not so high that a hunter feels uncomfortable climbing to and getting into the stand safely.
Place Your Treestand High Getting up the tree higher usually lets you see further, makes it harder for the deer to see you, and most importantly, your scent isn't concentrated at their nose level. If I had to pick a height, I would have to say that most of my stands are around 20 feet high.
A box that has been established will not spook deer, at least it hasn't where we have them. Getting in and out undetected is key like any other stand site. Hunting the same stand repeatedly box or not will allow deer to pattern the hunter.
Tripod Height I always recommend buying a tripod that matches your height, so that you do not have to bend to look into the viewfinder. Once you put your camera on a tripod, the viewfinder should be at your eye level. It is OK if it goes higher than your eye level, because you can always adjust the legs to be shorter.
However, camera mounts are standardized and you usually can use any tripod with any camera brand. Note that many tripods have exchangeable heads so you can swap them (if tripod mount on your binoculars differs from tripod mount on camera). You can even buy a tripod and a tripod head separately.
