A buddy of mine fell out of the tree hanging a stand yesterday.  If you guys don't wear a harness while hanging stands and hunting you should think twice.  You may think you don't need one,  but if it can happen to this dude,  it can happen to anyone.  The most hardcore dude you'll ever meet.  Puts up 30 stands a year....and he was doing this one as a favor for someone else.  He never wore them hanging stands but hunting he did.   think about your family....

I personally am thinking about buying that new HSS stand hanging harness they just came out with.  I have three vests that i've accumulated over time all SOP....but this new one looks pretty sweet.

Safety first boys.

He isn't dead,  but it's a possibilility he'll be sipping his lunch through a straw for the rest of his life.
