Tree Stand Safety is No Accident
Each year in South Carolina hunters are seriously injured as a result of falls from tree stands while hunting. In 2011, there were 11 reported tree stand accidents in our state, one of which resulted in a fatality. These accidents can be prevented through the proper use of a tree stand safety harness. Each time a hunter falls from a tree stand to tragic results, his/her family, friends and loved ones are affected as well. Every tree stand hunter owes it to their wives, husbands, children, mothers, fathers, and everyone around them to Stay Safe and wear some type of tree stand safety harness EVERY time they are in a tree stand!
To promote safe hunting, DNR is partnering with Hunter Safety Systems to give away one Free tree stand safety harness in each Hunter Education course in November and December. The winner of the Free safety harness will be drawn from the students attending these hunter education classes.
