Does anyone use the Hunters Safety System when in a tree stand? I've never used it, but thinking about it now that I'm old and hitting the ground from 20' would really suck.


God bless John Wayne!

Every time along with safety rope going up. Have the older style harness these new jacket types look great.

Absolutely- any treestand I'm using an HSS harness and either the linemans belt or a prusik on the climb. Seen way too many falls--- never had a stand give way on me but had some pucker factor moments with my climber when I've tried to hard to make a spot work.

Yes sir the new vest style HSS are nice. I can't believe all the trees I used to climb, dangle from limbs, lean out for shots, hanging stands over the years and never had a bad injury. I did have a 20' ladder stand shift on me one time when turning around to shoot behind my shoulder, luckily I dropped and rolled to lessen the impact. Scared the crap of me.

Now I don't leave home without HSS vest system and adding the safety lines for while climbing up/down. Do it for you loved ones.
