    Too much reliance on technology. "This stand is rated for 300#, no way it can break!" The way i see it, being a mechanic, if things didnt break then i wouldnt have a job and im really busy at work. Im sure most of it is human error but dont think that these stands cant break.

    I think the accidents happened then too, we just didn't have the social media like we do now to hear and talk about it.

    This is such a horrible year so far. Didn't hear much about this last year but it's getting out of hand this year

    I set up a ladder stand over the weekend thats 15' tall and my plan was to strap in once i got to the top but now im thinking maybe a lifeline aint such a bad idea. My biggest fear is that some asshole tinkered with the stand and i wont realize it in the dark getting into the stand. Gotta love faith in humanity.
