    He was 23 ft up. His HSS saved his life.

    Where your harness guys. I don't even want to think about what could have happened.

    He turned around to get a better look at a deer and was leaning on a branch. The branch broke.

    The real question here is...How big was the deer?

    I can say that because he was wearing his harness and is okay. Otherwise that would have been tasteless.

    So glad to hear he was wearing his harness. Getting tired of hearing about those that aren't wearing them.

    Just wondering if i were to fall out of the tree. What do you do with the HSS since it has been "stretched out" ? Can you send it in to be repaired?

    Since he's ok, can we tease him about mucking up the shot? Glad he's ok. I bet he never leaves home without it.

    I believe you need to replace the harness all together
