I realized just in time to grab my bow as a big limb fell right beside my stand ...A few inches closer to me I would guess I would be hoping someone would walk close enough to the tree to get me down from my harness, a bit closer than that, and I expect I wouldn't be typing this.
Scary really...it was 4-5 inch thick limb BTW. would have taken me out easy.
I probably would've died from a heart attack. I know that had you shaking in your boots! I've seen limbs fall but not from the same tree that I was in. Thank God you are ok. I think about stuff like this all the time. Maybe I should just stick to the blind in an open field lol.
