One thing that I have noticed when watching hunting shows on tv is that they have the tree strap too low. That is the strap that you hook to your harness. You need to have the tree strap as high as possible while still allowing you to sit comfortably. If your strap is too low, if you fall you could fall below your stand and make very difficult to get back onto it. I am planning on getting a climbing safety rope with a prusic knot. I read that the majority of falls happen when climbing up or down the tree. I care too much about my family to not do what I can to keep my self safe.
