Treestand Safety

Recommended Posts

Good Morning all, I would like to wish all a happy and safe hunting season, our main goal for this year and everytime we head to the stand is to return safe EVERY TIME!!!! Just a reminder to make sure your stands are in good condition, wear your safety harness and would like to recommend adding a lifeline!!!! I have added this precaution to everyone of my stands. Stay safe and we could all keep an eye out for each other when we find I product we really like or at a really good price. I found mine 2 years ago dirt cheap and bought everyone they had!!! Millennium SAFE LINK. They were $12. Wish I could find that deal again!!!

Welcome to the forums.  Sounds like you got a great deal.  And thanks for the reminder.

Accidents sure happen quick.  Had a fall Saturday myself when pulling down old canvas from a 2 person stand/blind.  Was a wasp nest between sandwiched layers of canvas that were behind the stand between it and the large oak the stand leans against.  Have mild but not life threatening allergic reactions with stings, so did not want to get stung.  Wasps came straight at my face and with split second reaction time to avoid getting stung opted to bail.  Had me trying to hurry down the ladder, but missed grabbing the top rung and fell about 12 ft upright, fall got broken somewhat by my right leg hitting a small tree on the way down.  Got a little banged up shin took the brunt, but luckily don't think anything got broken.   Had I been attached, I would surely have gotten stung and likely would have gotten banged up pretty good against the ladder.  

Seems the falls I have had over the past have been when working on stands and not when hunting, some of those times have been when it would be impossible to utilize a safety harness.  Not too long back was hanging a stick ladder and was connected to a big game treestands brand of lifeline, caught me like it was supposed to.

Martin...Millennium makes the Safe Link lifeline.  They were also the 1st treestand company to include lifelines with the sale of their stands.  They are also sold separately.
