A harness is the only way to go if you want to hunt to old age. I fell when a tree step failed 17 years ago. I shattered my right ankle. I missed landing on a dead oak stem by inches. That would have been the end of my hunting and breathing for ever at age 34. I work electrical construction and have to wear a harness every day when I am in the air. Once you quit worrying about the harness its like wearing pants you just don’t leave home with out them. Better to adjust a strap on the harness than the break on a wheel chair. Remember to use a strap around the tree from the time you start to climb until your feet are back on the ground. If you noticed my handle, now you know the rest of the story.
