    My LW sit and climb has never, ever, given me one ounce of trouble. It never gets left in the woods, and I inspect it every year. Mainly the "traction belts" that secure you to the tree. They need to be checked for any cracking to be safe. God bless LW.

    Excellent article. Leaving your stand in the woods is not good. Guys in my group have found straps cut by someone or something luckily they spotted it before anything happened. Check your stands constantly, be safe!

    ruttnutt had a cable break on him last season, by luck his foot was only inches from the latter stand his daughter had gotten out of moments before. His stand was only a few hundred yards from the Ocean, Keep in mind stands will rust out much faster in the salty air!

    My treestand will never fail. I don't use one.
    I'm afraid of heights so I keep my feet on the ground.
