I know that many of you are dead set on Summit tree stands, but the next time you are in the market for a new stand, you should really give Cougar Claw a look. I posted on here last weekend about the mishap I had with my stand. The seat on my stand came a loose causing me to fall through the top platform. It was my fault. I knew that my buckles were busted, but thought they would make it until the end of the season. I called Mr. Paul, owner of Cougar Claw, on Monday and explained what happened. I tried topurchase some replacementbuckles, but he said that there would be no charge, even thought I explained I had purchased my stand more than 5 years ago. Well, when I got home today there was a package on the porch with a brand new seat in it. I have gotten this kind of customer service every time I have called the company. The stands are made locally in Foley, Alabama. I know that everyone has their preference, but again, you should really give these stands a look the next time you are in the market.
