do you leave them out all year or not ? Not really meant for bragging , just curious as to what everyone has out . Kind of gives me a better idea of what others are talking about when they are describing how there season is going . Ours are all ladder stands and we leave them up all year . we do go and check straps about this time of year (done) and on occasion have to change a seat cushion or back rest but we're not in to the whole take them down and put them back up thing . I have several farms that I hunt and share some of them with my brother so we have several stands . Right now we have 21 stands up and 3 in my shop that are just waiting for us to find a place for them . Probably going to give one of the extras away again though as we have a new family in town and their 16 year old boy could use some help (His dads blind and him and his mom work their *** off) . He works for the farmer I lease from and will be hunting across the road from me .
