be honest do you wear a safety belt

Unread postby biggamecameraman » Tue Sep 12, 2017 4:37 pm

when I was younger in many cases I did not put on a safety harness when hunting whitetails . it's been a long time but these days I enjoy filming members bowhunting deer this time of year . I'am 57 years old now both me and my hunter each time out on a local trip deer hunting are tied in tight with our safety harness . our members that are crazy about deer hunting from a tree stand location do you always wear a safety belt :?:

Iam third member of my family that drop out of the sky. 1 broke just one ankle the other both. If a stand does drop try to land with your feet on the platform it's designed to take a impact and collapse

Yep been wearing them for years now. As I got older I realized that wearing one was a good move. In my younger years I did not even think about putting one on. I also use the life lines now too. It's a no brainer guys wear one. To think that your life is not worth less then a hundred dollars is foolish. Be safe out there and hope everyone has a good season.

most cases when a deer hunter gets hurt while in a tree stand he or she slips going in or coming out of the stand . that is the facts :D :D :D
