The Indiana Department of Natural Resources wants you to wear a treestand safety harness.
Many hunters are injured every year by not wearing a safety harness when up in a treestand.
Watch as the Indiana DNR shows you the correct way to use a treestand safety harness.
Face it, we have all done it. Climbing up into a treestand and not using a safety harness is usually harmless until that one time when you fall. That one mistake can kill you.
With all of the treestand safety harnesses that are available, a hunter should have no reason not to protect himself or herself against the effects of gravity.
Officials just want you to be as safe as possible this hunting season.
