Well, I'm a fool I never wear one I don't know why I have a brand new vest still in the box. I bought right after my brother in law fell out of MY tree stand and broke his back nearly paralyzing him he was lucky has plates and ribs as a vertebra now. I will try to be more responsible and wear one this year for my family.

I am too old to be messing around up there, but when I did use stands I used a belt 90% of the time. The last question on the poll is a hoot. I have seen squirrels fall out of trees numerous times.

I have too, that's why I thought it was funny to word it that way.
