The most important thing to consider when choosing a 4x4 deer stand tower is how it will fit into the hunting area you've chosen. This includes the height and width of the tower.
Safety restraints and harnesses are a must-have with any tower used for hunting. Get a tower that is light enough to take into the woods for easy assembly, as well as easy mobility should you choose to change your hunting location. The platform should have slip-resistant material. The tower should be capable of holding your weight and that of your hunting gear. There are some towers available that are made from weather-resistant materials for additional comfort.
