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!!!!!!!!!!!

AMEN.I'm alive because my harness saved me from falling off a skyscraper.It's like a seat belt,ask any police officer,they never have to unbuckle dead people.they go through the glass.No one thinks its going to happen to themIf you have loved ones wear it for them,if ya dont wear it for usWE HAVE A SAYING IN THE CLIMBING WORLD.IT'S NOT THE HEIGHT THAT'LL KILL YA ITS THE SUDDEN STOP
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
