With all the deer you may have taken there holds in your memory a special place i'm sure for each one you killed.

Just last year I fell for the first time out of a tree, I was about 16' up the tree setting up a stand for my cousin when I needed to get one more click from the strap and wee oh I went down...

If it was not the dead of winter I think I would have been more sore and broken, but because of the 4" of snow I had a little cushion to fall onto.
I normally use the hunter safety system, but I thought this would be a quick tie up, and boy it was!!!
All the way down, besides the hard hit of my elbow on a limb I was pretty darn lucky.

Just sat there a while to get my composure, and then back up I went.
(Get back on the bike and ride boy)

Lesson learned, always wear your harness and work in it too!!!
Makes since not to fall out!!!
