September is designated as Treestand Safety Awareness Month. That's when many people begin deer hunting. And those who aren't are likely prepping for the upcoming season. That's why it's important to use treestands safely.
Realtree and the Tree Stand Safety Awareness Foundation (TSSA) strive to ensure that every hunter comes home safe to their family and friends. To accomplish this, let’s get the season started by putting safety first.
TSSA designed an educational campaign called the “ABC’s of Tree Stand Safety” to serve as the building blocks to the awareness campaign (attached infographic):
Always remove and inspect your equipment
Buckle on your full-body harness
Connect to the tree before your feet leave the ground
Whitetails make the hunting world go round. Josh Honeycutt, deer hunting editor and "Brow Tines and Backstrap" blogger, knows a fair bit about killing mature deer. He was raised up hunting the river bottoms of Kentucky. And he still hunts there—among other places—to this day.
Follow along as he shares his adventures, experiences and knowledge of the white-tailed deer.
