Stayin Safe Reminders from HSS

20090904_HSSDanville, Alabama –  As the days get shorter and autumn colors begin to overtake the hunting woods, you’re likely to be spending a lot of time scouting trails, checking cameras and getting ready to hang treestands. But before you hang those stands, Hunter Safety System has a new list of “Stayin’ Safe Reminders” to help you enjoy an accident-free hunting season.

First, inspect your tree to ensure it is alive and straight with a circumference that is within the size limits prescribed by the manufacturer of your specific treestand. Do not attempt to climb or attach a treestand to a leaning tree.

Second, sacrificing safety for economy can be a very costly mistake, so never use a homemade stand. Only use treestands that are certified to Treestand Manufacturers Association (TMA) standards.

Third, always wear a full-body harness when installing your stands, steps and accessories. If you are installing a lock-on-style stand, use a lineman’s-style belt in conjunction with your full-body harness.

Be sure to check the Hunter Safety System website each month for important, life-saving safety tips. Log on to and click “Stayin’ Safe Reminders” at the bottom of the page.
