Every hunting season, there are hunters who get injured when they fall out of their tree stands. While tree stands can make hunting easier, they can be dangerous if proper precautions are not taken. The following safety tips, Motion Detector Sensor, products and accessories can help keep tree-stand hunters safe and accident-free.
Make sure that the tree stand is correctly installed and in good working condition before you use it. Only install it on a living, healthy tree with rough bark such as an oak or maple.
Always use a haul line that is new or in good condition to raise or lower your hunting equipment. Be sure that your rifle is unloaded or that your arrows are covered when transporting them up and down.
Always wear boots with good tread to ensure that you do not slip when climbing up to the stand.
Only step on thick, strong branches, and never put your entire weight onto a single limb. Place at least one foot and one hand firmly on a surface before you make your next move up or down.
Always use a safety harness when up in the stand. Inspect it before you put it on to make sure that it is working properly.
Wear a whistle around your neck so you can call for help if you need it.
