Safety Harness Myths Debunked

Safety Harness Myths Debunked

We've all heard them the excuses. The safety harness myths.

I can't find a harness that fits right. The tether strap on the safety harness gets in the way of the shot. They're too noisy.

Bowhunter TV host Mike Carney and Equipment Editor Tony Peterson dispel many of the common safety harness myths in this Tech Talk segment and provide point-by-point facts that eliminate any excuses you might have for not wearing a safety harness.

Today's harnesses are light, quiet and come in an array of sizes to fit any hunter. They're easy to put on and are feature-packed making them not only needed safety devices but valuable assets in the tree as well.


And most falls occur while climbing in or out of a stand, so don't overlook a safety rope designed to keep you attached while ascending and descending. All of the excuses have been eliminated. Wear a harness every time you are in a tree stand.
