The other thread got me thinking about it. I often take two rifles to the blind. Typically a bolt action and an AR of some sort. It can be a PITA climbing ladder or stairs with two rifles hanging off my back. Both of the places I hunt are fairly remote and I've often thought about leaving a rifle in a stand over night if I plan on hunting it the next morning. Does anyone to that?

No, for two reasons.

I never hunt the same stand twice in a 24 hour period. I hunt 26 miles from our southern border.

NOPE, and I'm not close to the border. You just never know when someone might be wondering through your place.

Nope too fearful. I have left my bow in the stand overnight.

If the property was pretty remote then I may leave it there between morning and evening hunts, but never over night

I have left it over the noon during rain storm before. Don't make it a habit though. Uncle used to leave his all the time. To be fair he hunted out of very sturdy blinds and had a combo lock on the door.

Climbing a ladder you should always have three points of contact, with nothing in your hands. Always use a rope to hoist backpack, rifle, bow etc. Wether climbing a tree stand or a box blind.

Thats why they make slings for guns and straps for packs

unless it's a box blind with stairs, i always
use a rope to pull gear and firearms up. if
you fall with a long gun slung, you're breaking
your firearm or bones or both.

i've left bows in trees and guns in blinds during
a mid day break. never overnight for a gun, and i
never leave a magazine or ammo if i leave a gun.
