The key hunting_stand=* is added to amenity=hunting_stand to specify the type of hunting stand.

Without this tag amenity=hunting_stand is likely to be treated as a raised stand, so applying the tag is more important for other types. In the UK the predominant type of hunting stand is a shooting butt, usually called a grouse butt, and use of this tag is particularly important in a UK context. Shooting/Grouse butts themselves come in various forms: ranging from a simple pillar to an area enclosed by a shoulder-height wall (types illustrated below).
