I wil leave mine out depending on the deer activity and sign on private property for a bit, however I do not leave my stands out when season is over. I put all of them in my barn for storage for the year.Just cost too much to let mother nature take its toll on or someone else take it to their barn.

Yes, Rackseeker, that is a drawback to my plan. However I killed twice last year after I left my climber two different nights.


Were they mature bucks? I know what you mean about be lazy,LOL...The older I get the lazier I have gotten.

Left mine in the woods last week. Went hunting last night and rodents decided they needed part of the seat. That'll teach me to be lazy.

Have a new private lease and because of work, I can't get back until next weekend. Left my Summit for the first time ever and you guys have me scared that I might lose it.

I joined this forum to gain wisdom and knowledge and thanks for providing a great deal of it.

If I'm hunting it later that day or the next I will leave it. I usually don't leave it in the woods over a day or two

In most cases if I plan on hunting there the next day I will leave it (unlocked) but I hunt private land. I usually check predicted winds for the day I'm hunting and the following day to determine if I will hunt that particular spot on the following day. Sometimes those predictions are wrong and I end up with a stand where I really don't want it. That's the downside to leaving one hanging. If I have another stand up or another climber to use in case this happens it's not so bad. A tip: If you are leaving it and afraid it may be taken (or you just don't want it seen) sometimes it helps to turn it around on the base of the tree away from the direction it may likely be seen. You can even brush it up a little before leaving as well.
