I mostly use ladder stands and leave them out all year long. The oldest one I have is 6 or 7 years old and I replaced all the bolts in it this weekend. Does anyone every worry about the stand itself. I know it is a rusty inside the tube framing of the stand. Also, I've had my safety harness for about the same amount of time. I've never had a fall, but wondering if I should replace it.
