    What kind of safety harness do you guys use for your kids when they hunt.

    the harness that came with our buddy stand says for 120lbs and up and my son is around 70lbs. I tried it on him and it seems to fit ok.

    Any other suggestions?

    There are youth sized safety vests available but they are a bit pricey. I think just like with a life jacket....you have to make sure it fits them right and they can't slip out of it. Remember if he falls the force on that harness will be more than a gentle pull.....so it does have to fit snug and you have to KNOW he can't slip out of it.

    I bought the HSS small size, yeh it's pricey, but I could never forgive myself for going cheap and something happening to one of my kids.:wave:

    I looked at the vest and think I will go ahead and order one.
