On the morning of Nov/4th/2015 I was sitting in one of my favorite tree stands watching a small buck slip by in the timber when I received a text from my good friend Norm who owns the farm on which I was hunting. He said ” I’m watching you on T.V.” and we joked about a better use of his time. All of the sudden with no warning I passed out and The cell phone dropped to the ground. I woke up hanging from my safety harness. Although confused I was able to re-board the stand where I sat attempting to regain my composure so that I could climb down. After sitting for just a few minutes it happened again. I again climbed back on to the stand. I immediately began packing up my cameras and production equipment and got down. I texted Norm and he was there in minutes with his side by side ATV and took me to safety. To make a very long story short a couple of days later I received a shiny new pacemaker. As I’m sure you have figured out by now MY TRESS STAND SAFETY HARNESS SAVED MY LIFE. If you have any one in your life that you care about get a harness and a life line and use it EVERY TIME YOU CLIMB. Its the most loving and thoughtful gift that you could ever give the hunter in your life. It ranks up there with firearm safety.
ITS THE PROFESSIONAL THING TO DO!
