Big Dog 17′ Big Bud, 2 Man, Flip-up Shooting Rail BDL-451
Product Review (submitted on September 25, 2012):
I've had this tree stand for over a year. I use it outside of hunting season as well as during. The most significant PRO and CON are:
PRO - the stand is relatively solid and came with two good harnesses. I expect it will last a good many years to come.
CON: in less than 4 months, the frame began to rust. Now I expect rust, but not that fast. I simply bought some Rustoleum paint for covering rust spots and applied. That stuff works great - but I suppose that is another product review. Working in industry, I know that without proper and continuous quality checks, issues like poor paint processing can cause greater opportunity for rust. Overall, I am satisfied.
