No, we hunters are not that dumb. For instance, I comprehended right away not one hunter said anything about Obama in that picture.
Um, you know that deer can't write though, right? Of course you do, not being dumb.

Some do some don't.

Some are elaborate, freestanding cabins like this:



Some are just platforms or seats that attach to trees:






And I'm sure some homemade ones are even less elaborate & safe.

Deer stands.

So depending on the type, you could easily fall off/out of the thing & a gun could easily fall off too, & if one is drinking anything could be possible, even in the enclosed ones.

Obama destroyed healthcare so now deer are free to buy stuff and sleep on the couch while watching TV?
Obama's expanding government handouts to wildlife!

These must be the 'welfare deer' I hear so much about these days.

I was assuming possibly incorrectly from Robertplattbell's comment

I used to represent a Deer Stand maker.....who was sued. More than once.
he was refering to a company commercially manufacturing and selling stands and would therefore be held to the safety standards in effect. I see now that "deer stand maker" could refer to anyone knocking up a deer stand not for sale - but offered for the use of others.

On the other hand, if I offered you free of charge a device I'd built myself, and in using it you hurt yourself because it was unsafe you might have a case against me - I don't know
