I'm pretty sure your 2X4 stob will come shooting up out of the ground like a lactose patient an hour after a gallon of milk and your pod will slide on the ground better than Otis Nixon did for the Atlanta Braves, cause that's a very heavy stand! Your leverage needs to be up high to pull the stand up. Attach high on tree/structure & to the stand top with a ratchet strap/rope and use your 2X4 stob in the ground to keep the stand from sliding. If there are not any trees or solid structures around where you want to place it I'd find some help. But if you insist on doing it yourself remember, move the head the rest will follow. Gluck bro

The easiest way is a toss up between renting a crane or using a heavy lift helicopter preferably the kind used by the military. Seriously, tried it, done it, almost killed myself and will never do it again. if you are low on friends, try hiring a good day laborer. Or at least make sure you have good health insurance and are paid up on your life insurance

Well it's not a 'stob' but I've seen pictures of a system used to set up quad pods and box stands using a long pipe with a large eye bolt on top. They run a long chain from the quad pod, thru the eyebolt to the truck hitch and have the long pole upright but slanted toward the stand. As the truck pulls the chain, the pole rises upward and pulls the stand up. That seems to work fine for quadpods and box stands. Now for a ladder stand....get you some folks to help.

It's called "Falling Derrick" method of raising a structure.


It's used sometimes by ham radio operators to raise towers.
