I say it every year, but it bears repeating: If you are not wearing a treestand harness, you're nuts. Take a look at this picture. The man hanging from the strap is Jim Barta of Hunter's Safety Systems, makers of one of the original high-quality, hunter-friendly safety harnesses designed to keep you upright if you fall from a tree stand. I shared a camp with Jim on my recent Oklahoma hunt, and during a lull in the action one afternoon, he delivered his popular harness demonstration, wherein he intentionally steps off a tree stand hung 20 feet up. It's pretty cool. It also gets people's attention.
