Theft is a problem but what's new about that. Even putting a cable on it does not seem to stop the thieves these days.
Ditto! Had a ladder stand stolen several years ago.Just happen to be on a neighbors land this past spring metal detecting an old home place.My brother says "hey you wanna see your stand" I said man we can't see my stand from here.He points up and there's my stand.The neighbor is no longer around(divorce,his father-in-laws land).Guess he forgot his/my stand.We went to him at the time it got gone and ask him had he seen anyone around and he said he suspected coon hunters of stealing it.Liar .As far as hunting out of one that's all I use other than a climber if I need to move around.I leave the stands year round and the deer don't seem to pay attention to them.Looks like I'll have another one to hunt out of this year.
