September is Tree Stand Safety Awareness Month! All of your loved ones want you to make it back to them safely so before you head back out into the woods this season, remember your ABCs of tree stand safety! The Tree Stand Safety Awareness Foundation‘s ABCs of tree stand safety were created to help hunters stay safe in their tree stands:
- Always remove and inspect your equipment
- Buckle on your full-body harness
- Connect to the tree before your feet leave the ground
By performing these 3 simple steps, tree stand users can virtually eliminate their risk of falling to the ground as the majority of falls occur outside the stand. TSSA encourages all hunters to take tree stand safety seriously, every time you hunt from, hang, or remove a tree stand.
