The use of a Lifeline can be the single greatest tool to keep a treestand hunter safe at all times while above ground level. Yes, the harness is a must-have item, and it took many years of preaching the need for using it to help save the lives of countless hunters across the country. The fact is a harness will only save you if you’re properly anchored. To make matters worse, statistics show that most accidents occur when climbing in and out of the treestand. That’s why the Lifeline is so important. The Lifeline allows you to stay safely connected from the first step off the ground, throughout your hunt, and your descent back to ground level. Every treestand you hunt should include a Lifeline to protect you and the ones you love from serious injury or death.
