    Default Safety Harness for tree stand

    So this will be my son's first year deer hunting and we have built our tree stands but I was just thinking maybe I should get him some sort of safety harness.
    Personally I have never worn one, but then that's just me. What are others using for safety harness in tree stands.

    I`ve never worn one. Don`t think they make one that`ll fit me. Lol. If you were local i`d give you one, likely 3 or 4 around here somewhere that came with my stands.

    Trying to do some research can't really find how he would use it in a wooden tree stand. Do I tie a secure rope to the tree and then he connects the harness to it?

    I'm a little way away from you but thank for the offer. It seems they are mostly for the metal stands.

    They are affordable and comforable. Everyone that hunts in a tree stand should aways have some sort of safety harness

    yes this is usually how it works, you can find different systems out there but what you said here is usually the easiest way

    Check Kijiji. I always see some decent harnesses, new or practically new, for sale.
    Usually the harnesses that come with treestands have a harness and a tether that you attach to the tree each time you set-up. You can use this even with permanently installed treestands.

    Do some googling on the Prusik Knot system. It's easier to watch a few videos than try to explain it.

    I have a harness here that works with the system I haven't used in a few years. Let me know if you're interested.

    Obviously you can do what you want but my suggestion is to both get one and lead by example and don’t ruin hunting for the rest of your sons life by letting him find you dead at the bottom of your tree

    I rarely wear one - most of our stands are ladder stands and very sturdy. We still have two older peg/ TV antenna and strap-on stands that get dicey at times.
