ladder stand

How would anyone suggest building a "lightweight" ladder stand that can be broken down to carry in to a REMOTE hunting site without the use of a truck to carry in the tons of pressure treated lumber?

would recomend looking into climbing stands they usually weigh around 20 - 30 lbs and can be carried in while it still is a pain sometimes, just cant really see a ladder stand being built light enough to carry in to a remote location very easily.

use aluminium and build it like a folding ladder and attach the seat with bolts or and a brace. we have 2 like that. my cousin built them to my spec. they are built out of 1 1/2 sq. tubing and are 14ft tall at the seat and 30"s wide . i had the seats welded to the ladder frame, but we could have modified it so it would have been in several pieces to be bolted together. think they wieghed somewhere around 50 lbs . i had to carry mine aprox 250 yrds into the woods down along a small creek .
i have them painted flat black and green so they blend in to the tree.
