Hope he'll be alright. Similar fate happened to me 4 years ago with my browning a-bolt 270. Strap came unscrewed from gun while climbing ladder stand. Gun fell to the ground and fired. This scared the hell out of me. Back stock broke in half and I was upset and fortunate to say the least. An old timer on straw plains fixed the rifle for at a reasonable price.

I personally don't load my gun till I'm sitting and hunting. I had a guy on our lease slip and fall and the gun went off. No injury thank The Lord.

Curious on why you would even think about climbing into a stand with a loaded gun? You must have missed that part of the HS class.
