Treestand safety is vitally important for any hunter who prefers deer hunting from the treetops.
Every hunting season, a few stories pop up about hunters getting hurt or killed from a fall out of a tree stand. Hunting 20 feet up in a swaying tree is no joke and should never be taken lightly.
The worst thing about those stories is that they are all easily preventable with the correct tree stand safety equipment and protocol.
Check out this video from New Day Outdoors Productions for a reminder as to why treestand safety is so important and how you can make sure you stay safe this hunting season.
Strapping on a safety harness may not always be the most convenient thing in the world, especially when you are anxious to get settled in and start hunting. However, just remember the purpose behind the treestand safety harness and equipment.
When buck fever hits and that big bruiser is coming in close, you won’t have to worry about one wrong step ending your hunting days for good.
Don’t put your health and safety at risk this deer hunting season and utilize proper treestand safety. Become familiar with the system you choose before your planned hunting days, and it won’t take much of your time to set up on the day of your hunt at all.
If you really don’t want to deal with a safety harness, then keep your boots planted firmly on the ground and set up a ground blind, which can be just as effective for tagging out on a big buck.
