Don’t be a statistic: routinely check stands and tether yourself in before climbing up.

A general lack of awareness results in a high number of treestand-related injuries and deaths each season. Sadly, these accidents are mostly preventable and should never occur.

The following video message comes to us from a deer hunter named JT Harden who filmed himself immediately after his stand collapsed. As you’re about to see, this bloodied and bruised advocate for treestand safety has an important message to share that might have saved his own life.

Watch the video below:

This is why you need to stay connected all times! 25ft up! Thank goodness he was connected to the tree with his #HunterSafetySystem. Thanks JT Harden for sharing your story with us.

Don’t neglect treestand safety when deer hunting this year.

The season, your future hunts and even your life can end in the blink of an eye.

Be a smart hunter, not a foolish one.

Share harden’s message with all of your hunting buddies. Safety is important!
