Default safety in the tree stand

Earlier this week, I heard the bad news that a man fell 20feet out of his tree stand and was killed. The report said he didn't have on a safety harness. I feel very sorry for his family and friends. But this can be a valuable lesson for all of us. WEAR YOUR SAFETY HARNESS EVERYTIME YOU GET IN YOUR TREE, IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!!!!!! They may be a pain, but I think it's a pain you can handle. There are some really good vest systems out there and they are pretty comfortable. I use the Hunters Safety System. They can be pricy, but I think my life is worth it. JUST WEAR IT!!!!!!!!!!!
