  • I have the old fashion safety belt when I am hunting in a tree stand. Can anybody recommend something that never would interfere

    I have the old fashion safety belt when I am hunting in a tree stand. Can anybody recommend something that never would interfere with my shot and is better then a safety belt? I was thinking more of a shoulder harness. Please give me the make and model. Thank You

    Get the one that goes on like a vest and the strap goes right up through the top of the parka. I also use the controlled decent device, so that if you do slip it lets you to the ground in a controlled mode. It is matched to your weight - has to be sent back to manufacturer every 3 years for re-packing the device.

      Hunter Safety System makes a great variety of vests...I recommend any of their products. www.huntersafetysystem.com

          I wear the second generation harness. The leg wraps that lead to the chest and back with the harness strap that comes off the top of the back. It can be cumbersome at times but I learned if you put it under your outer layer of clothing it is out of the way and a lot more comfortable. I have always heard a lot of good about hunter safety systems but they are a little pricey and what I have works so I've never made the change.

            Aside from the vest style safety harness,(I wear a HSS) You need a means to stay connected from the first step, all the way up, and back down again. I use a Fallguy brand seatbelt type retractable that I hook into on the ground. Also a prussic style loop on a fixed line works well and is cheaper. Both serve the same purpose, to arrest your fall while climbing up or down. There are other controlled descent style systems that slow your fall and lower you slowly.
