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):

Buckle on your full-body harness
Connect to the tree before your feet leave the ground
