Default Starting to get concerned...

More and more people are having problem's falling or almost falling from treestands. Makes me think alittle bit as season approaches. I usually don't use a safety harness because the only one I ever had was a single waist strap. But when I purchased my Hunters View Hawk Cable Climber, it came with a full harness that goes around your shoulders and chest. So with all the almost falls, you can be sure I'll be wearing mine come October 12.

Take it from someone who has, fallen wear the safty strap or even better purchase a five point harness like The Seat of the Pants. Its no fun laying at the bottom of a tree looking up at your stand where you were a few seconds before.

Wearing your harness is extremely important -- check out our video feed at Treestand.com on treestand safety.

I always use mine, i also bought adapter straps with coated rings on them. This ways when i am at the top of my later i click in and when i get out i wait until im on the ladder to unclick. The only time i have ever came close to falling is getting in or out of the stand. This way i do not have to worry about that.

Hey Commanche,

Do you have a link or anything to the website listing the stands that were recalled by Hunter's View. I got on their website and didn't see anything.

Thanks

I have already read about the re-call. All I saw was lock on stands that used a nylon ratchet strap. My climber was on the list, and I have not had a problem with it to this point.

I've found it not only serves as a safety device in the event of a fall, but also a security blanket. I feel a lot more relaxed in shooting from a stand with the harness on. My grouping is noticeably better with the harness on, cause I can relax and focus on the deer instead of focussing on my balance and wondering if I'm gonna fall.
