So last year I took this climbing stand and set it on a tree I intended to hunt, but then a different property got interesting and I ended up hunting it instead and left the climber on the other property from about September to December. So when I go to retrieve it this is what I found. The stand was new and in perfect condition, not a scratch on it when I left it there. Now scratched ALL over. And the scratches go deep. If your not careful get splinters. It’s like someone ran a grinder over it. The stand is aluminum with almost like a spray in truckbed like coating on it. I’ve never had anything ate up like this in the woods, I’m guessing squirrels? But really don’t know. Anyone seen anything like this?
