Deer Stand Safety

How many straps do ya'll use on your ladder stands? Do you also use chains and turnbuckles?

I just moved one of my 2 man stands and used 2 ratchet straps. Thinking I need to add another.

On a side note its now sitting between 2 crossings I have found. Cant wait, got a lot of crossing action on cams!

re: Deer Stand Safety
With a regular little metal ladder stand I feel fine with two good ratchet straps.

Bigger stuff gets bigger straps. I trust good ratchet straps more than anything else.

re: Deer Stand Safety
Nylon straps lose their strength with time due to sun light, flood waters, tree rats, etc. Inspect them on a regular basis. Trust me, it's hard to be cool when you fall from a tree stand.

re: Deer Stand Safety
one ratchet strap for one man ladders

two for two man ladders

just make sure the tree rats have not eaten them

also make sure the feet are on good solid ground or put a piece of wood down there.

Check every year, and don't trust anyone else or you could end up falling 20+ feet

Anyone using a ladder stand should be wearing a harness.
