Hunted the Lewis County lease last weekend with my dad and a long time hunting partner, I had to leave Sat afternoon so the two ol birds had the farm all to their selves.. Monday morning my dad was in his favorite spot in his favorite climber waiting before sunrise, over the past couple of years I have been pushing him to wear his safety harness and slowly but surely he has startd to wear it every time out, he is 69 years old and I am worried sometimes but he is in good shape and rabbit hunts all season and still uses a climber to deer hunt out of. Another thing we all started doing was taking out walkie talkies which gives us all peace of mind to be able to check in with each other, anyway as the sun came up my dad decided to stand up and in an instant he was hanging from his tree in his safety harness! The platform had dropped and he was trapped 15 feet from the ground, as LUCK would have it he was able to to get his radio and call his buddy Sam, he said Sam was there in a flash to help him get down... this story ended well! BUT... PLEASE, EVERYONE! Wear your harness EVERY TIME! Take the extra second to put it on and have a line of communication, phone or radios, it can save your life or the life of a friend or family member.. WEAR IT EVERY TIME !!!
