Portable stands work both ways, kinda like tracers. . . .if you can tote it in, someone can tote it out - make sure you lock it down good.
For a permanent stand, you need to dig down below the frostline- whatever that is in your area, to make a stable base. Going to 4x4's is smart.
We don't really think about it, but, the biggest killer of hunters is tree stands. In my state, more hunters die from falls from tree stands than from firearms accidents.
So, think, plan well, and build a safe tree stand- not just safe for one, this year, but safe enough for 2 people, 10 years from now.
