Default Treestand Accident. Hunter fall

I just heard on our police scanner that a guy fell out of his stand about 2 miles from here. theyre calling for air evac. I hope the guy is gonna be ok. they said hes fully alert, so thats a good sign.

We had a guy fall 2 weeks ago he broke is back left arm and a leg. this is the second time this guy fell he hung upside down for 2 1/2 hrs last year from his safty belt till his partner checked on him and cut him down. This guy is 65 and I belive if he can ever walk again he should stay out of tree stands.

Unforeseen stuff happens but what cracks me up is that if you give a guy a choise say gaining 10more fps on his bow or the latest and greatest of safety harnesses for 100 bucks or whatever, most any of us are going to choose the 10 more fps. That's how we are.

Wow... I truely hope that he will be okay.

I have NEVER climbed a tree without my harness. If, for some stupid reason, I forgot it... Well, I guess ain't hunting that early morning and will go all the way back to get it.

Let me say this as sternly as I can: ANYONE WHO CLIMBS A TREE WITHOUT A HARNESS -- YOU ARE A FOOL! [:@]
