Default Be careful hanging those stands...

I about fell out of the tree yesterday while trying to get my stupid heavy tree stand pulled up there. I went through and lowered all of my stands in the last month to between 8 and 16 feet. This was my last one, and after doing all the others I guess I got lazy and didn't bring the harness (well...for the last few). Needless to say, that's when it happens. Just a friendly reminder to be careful, take your time, and use the proper safety equipment to protect yourself when getting up in a tree for any reason.

I hear you on that, I do some stupid things when hanging stands and often wonder how I did it.

falls from stands kill more hunters than anything else.something to keep in mind.glad you didnt get too banged up.Im gonna stay grounded this year i think due to injuries.
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
