i believe i saw this stand at a hunting show here in Ny .solid looking ,i hunt state land and the rules state no damage to the tree.if this is the stand i think it is ,the vsection against the tree was 1/2,3/8 tek screws.Also i have welded a lot of steel in my day,certifications are a way to say hey all these welds are good.Im getting the impression that this is turning into"us against them"3-4posts and now your pushing a certain stand and bad mouthing a certified stand.HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM....the BS meter is starting to ring
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
