As the evening settles in and hunting light disappears hunters begin to pack up their equipment and prepare to get back to their vehicle or camp. In the dark the hunter reaches around the tree and starts to look for that first step with his feet…
We all have been there. It’s when hunters are their most vulnerable for losing their balance, slipping off the step, or falling to the ground.
More hunters are injured or killed each year from falls climbing to or from their stands than those that actually fall out of their stands. It is while getting into or out of a their stands that a hunter is most vulnerable for a paralyzing or life-threatening injury.
With the advent of today’s safety harnesses, there is no reason anyone should ever fall from a stand. The development of the safety harness has undoubtedly saved many lives. But, now the hunter can fully protect himself from injury and the family from heartbreak by using a safety line with Prusik knot as they climb and descend to and from their stands.
Millennium Treestands is making sure that every hunter who purchases one of their ladder stands or hang-on stands will be better protected. Millennium will be including the new SafeLink safety rope in the box of all their hang-on and ladder stands. The SafeLink is 35 feet long and made to support hunters up to 350 pounds. It comes with a Prusik knot and carabineer to provide the hunter with the safest ascent and descent to and from the stand. The SafeLinks in Millennium’s 2-man stands comes with double Prusik knots and two carabineers.
