Hunter falls 22ft. out of treestand

Postby compaq » Mon Feb 18, 2013 6:52 am

For everyone that thinks using safety with treestand is important, yes it is....but also realize that even a safety belt can go wrong, great example int his vid. I know Dale the guy in the video who fell. Although it looks like a movie or something at first, its just goood editing. They were putting together a tree stand video for their hunting team and his harness broke in the process, check it out, great vid

Hope he recovers quickly. who made the failed harness, and do they know why it failed? design flaw? worn parts? improper installation? What happened? :(
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
