My rifle fell out my stand this morning also while I was getting settled in. It fell over and landed straight up with the barrel stuck in the mud like a javelin. Luckily I keep a disassembled cleaning rod and some patches in my bag. Cleaned up the mud from the barrel real good and kept on hunting. Didn't see anything so I did not have to shoot. Cleaned it up real good when I got home and took a quick trip to the range. All is good. No damage. Guess I lucked out. We all need to be careful as stuff happens quick.
