Correct. We have quite a few of them. Most were handmade here in TX to mimic the older styles. Very heavy and definitely a permanent stand. But they come in handy for some trees and if you're comfortable shooting sitting down. I like themThat stand or variations thereof have been around for years. Very good, very comfortable, but very heavy. You need to be able to drive the stand close to the tree. You do not want to have to pack it very far.
