Description

Hunting Stands are deployable platforms that give the hunter different advantages such as better visual camo and/or field of view.

How Stance matters when in stands

  • Do platforms with walls (towers, blinds) override the stances of only those body parts which are hidden behind the wall of the platform? Does being prone or crouched make a difference if the player is already protected by a wall anyway, and is everything above a wall not platform-protected/overridden?
    • Solid objects provide 100% camo for the body parts hidden behind them. Walls are solid objects.
  • Do platforms with no walls (treestands, tripods) override the player stance in any case and provide their own protection?
    • Being in a stand is treated as being in a special stance, camo wise. Basically in the code the player's stance can be prone, crouched, standing, treestand, ground blind etc. In other words your stance does not matter in a stand except if it helps to hide parts of your body behind a solid object such as a wall.

Noise / spooking animals

Deploying or dismantling stands will spook animals within 100m / 328ft.
Entering and exiting stands does not cause noises.

Stand Types

Each stand has different pros and cons that make them suitable for different areas, situations and species. A Ground Blind with excellent visual camo is for instance very effective vs. visually oriented creatures such as birds while a Tree stand with excellent scent reduction is better vs. scent oriented species such as bears, hogs & coyotes.
