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.

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.
