    Tree Stand Safety Refresher

    With the seasons fast approaching it doesn't hurt to review Tree stand safety, even for us veterans. please, please at a minimum wear a safety harness and wear it properly.

    Most injuries occur when climbing in to and out of your treestand so take extra precaution when doing so, especially in bad weather. A safety harness does no good if you do not use it properly.

    Here is a website with a nice video that covers Tree stand Safety.

    Another website with great information. http://www.treestandinfo.com/tree_stand_safety.htm

    The Treestand Manufacturers Association (TMA) also provides a list of do's and dont's in PDF format.

    US Fish and Wildlife also has a treestand safety PDF.

    i think u got it backwards. they end up dead or worse, paralized. i would much rather be dead than have to live the rest of my life not being able to move while someone has to baby sit me for the rest of my life
