Silent killer, Deep Vein Thrombosis

Uploaded on October 26, 2012

Deep Vein Thrombosis, what is it and what can it do to you?

One thing for sure it flat out doesn't matter what physical shape your in, prolonged sitting can and will cause this silent and most deadly situation. Individuals in excellent physical health have been known to step off International flights after sitting for 10 to 14+ hours and collapse within minutes departing the aircraft. Same can happen after sitting in a car/truck, boat or even a tree stand.

I strongly recommend to read the following link, it just might save you or someone you are with!

Definitely some good food for thought. It's tough to force yourself to move when you know that the slightest movement can spook the buck that was standing behind your tree stand. I try to limit my tree stand time to intervals of four hours (unless there's some action, then it's game on). I even occasionally will slowly stand up, just to get some movement and blood flow to my legs.

I do a lot of international travel for work and the general rule of thumb I've learned is to move around a bit every 2 hours or so. In the tree stand I'll stand up and stretch from time to time after a good look around. I know it's possible to spook a deer while doing it but I always feel better afterward and can sit still for another hour or two without fidgeting. I never actually thought about DVT while in the stand, just about easing the stiffness, but it makes sense. Good post!
