Default Tree Stand Safety!

One of my co-workers received a call her brother
had fallen out of his tree stand from 25feet and
laid there from 5:30am until 4:00pm before his
hunting partners found him!He has a broken back
and both of his feet are broken he had to be air
lifted to St.Louis,MO for surgery and the good news
was that he had feeling in his legs!The reason for
this post is that we should check our equipment
for wear and stress as the buckles on his harness
broke so be careful guys take care!!
