No matter which way you go , point is wear a safety harness , also no matter what type of stand your hunting out of wear the harness , I have 20' ladders , too think shit doesn't happen , your under estimating your chances of taking a header out of any stand , be safe , good luck , you definitely owe it too the people who care a lot about you !

For climbers, a Q safe has replaced the rope style tree strap for me. Night and day difference IMO. Also, a good set(not the PLASTIC ones that come with lone wolf) of stabilizer straps are priceless. They work as your tether and once at your destination you cinch them down. You would be amazed at how rock solid(or even more) your climber feels when you add them.

And while were talking about tree safety, don't forget to check those screw in steps for the ones that use them.  I had a friend a couple years ago had one pull out while climbing and ripped him up pretty bad when he struck some of the others on the way down. A lot of guys leave them in season after season and never check them until its too late

I got rid of all my screw-in steps. They're just daggers waitin to stick you in a slip or fall. Now only use sticks or ladder steps on ALL my hang on stands.
