Ohhh yeah, after a couple years ago----I wear a harness!!!:thumbsup:Thanks , I now have nose bleed :thumbsup:
when I was young I built my first climbing tree stand out of bed rail and climbed that high.
I didn't think to tie the bottom climber to the top and it fell to the bottom of the tree while I repositioned my feet at the top and there was with no way to climb down. BTW = I always hunt alone.
as it was getting dark and no one knows where I am I start thinking someone will find my body in a few days when the buzzards are circling at best.
in a desperate act I bear hug the tree as the other half of my home made climber falls to the bottom of the tree.
after I slid down with pine sap and wounds to my body I decided elevated shooting houses was the way to go.
I tell you this so you will be very careful and keep that harness [ I never had ] ready to save you if something goes wrong.
