Ant, glad to hear you're not hurt too bad. Good thing you had that harness on. Good reminder for everyone too.

Is that your treestand strap that is broken in the pics? It looks pretty skinny for a stand strap. I always double ratchet my stands in addition to the stock strap.

Not only should we all wear the harnesses, make sure to do a quick inspection of the stand before stepping on, it only takes a second and, ovbiously, it may save your life!!

Thanks guys. No, no tools hit the strap. I had just got up in the tree and started to trim the branches out and behind the tree.

Bri, that was a 1" nylon webbing...double ratchet strapped !

No squirrel damage, no branches hit it...It just failed.
Man, talk about a catastrophic failure. Glad to hear you're alright bro.
