I knew a young man several years ago that used one of the single strap harness devices. He fell and suffocated while hanging in the tree.

I have a Hunters Safety System, and you can easily put it on in the dark. If you don't have one, get one. They are $100, and yes that seems like a lot of money, but if you happen to fall, what's $100? I have a wife and 2 boys and if $100 is all that stands between me and getting home, I'll buy 3 of them. These are just my thoughts and not to try and get anyone to buy one but there are a few other full body harness. out there. Why chance it over $50 - $100?

Other problem I have is attaching it to the tree. You have the strap you tie to tree. Then have the line which is about foot long between you and the tree. I have so many tree stands the I dont have enough straps to go around the trees. Do you guys with attach the strap to the tree each time.

Seat o' the pant for me. I tried the hunter safety system but in the event of a fall your junk will get crushed! Instead of wearing it to my stand I will pack it along with my jacket in my backpack and put it on at the tree. Takes an extra minute but well worth it!

Falling is no fun, 6 months recovery in full body cast, in the summer too.My fall was at work , not from a tree stand.

I always carry my knife when in a tree stand. There maybe times you have to cut off the harness to prevent it from suffocating you. This is especially true if you only use the simple belt harness. With the simple belt you have 5-10 minutes to get out of it or you will suffocate.
