    Just build a blind. That's what I have always done. Adds to the excitement when a 9+ footer comes in.

    I agree with medic. A small folding saw, a bunch of cheap 1/8 inch rope for lashing and some small black spruce and birch trees = tree stand.

    I was going to recommend making a crotch board if you couldn't get a stand. Then I realized that many of the trees in AK probably do not have crotches.
    I sometimes take a crotch board along while hunting. Take a board and notch on each end and then wedge in a crotch of a tree. I attach a rope to carry.

    Sure they do! There's at least 3 trees with crotches in this photo alone:
