I harness up all the time unless I am in a ladder stand. We are slowing going to all ladderstands but in the mean time, tree steps are out and laddersteps are in. This way we climb past the stand and step down onto it.

Definitely made my wife feel better. I don't think she realized that I didn't wear one.... I got a nice ear full when I told her I hadn't worn one all season.

I didn't and don't need to read all the replies. I always have my Muddy full body harness with me, and an extra under the truck seat. I have seen what can happen, and don't want it happening to me. I want to live to enjoy my harvest, my life.

I wear mine all the time except the 1 or 2 times a season I forget it. I need to get it to 100% of the time, it is not worth the risk for broken bones or to be paralyzed.

I keep mine in my deer hunting clothes/tub and gets attached to my backpack so I can never forget it.

Always, Started using the hunter safety system with the prussik(sp) knot. It works great. Gotta return home the the fam so I can hunt another day.

Every time in every stand, I like to sleep in stands, and don't want to wake up to a broken neck, or never wake up again.
