Deer Hunters Treestand Safety 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm Recreation
BSU Outdoor Program Center Clinic - Deer Hunters Treestand Safety Where: BSU rec center lobby When: 6pm Thursday Nov 1 Cost: no cost to attend, rigging kits available for $35 DEER HUNTERS TREESTAND SAFETY Learn a simple, lightweight, versatile, and secure fall prevention system that you can use deer hunting this fall. Clinic is free and you have the option to buy a complete kit with swiss seat, locking carabiner, prussic, and 9.5mm anchor line for $35 Take a moment and think if you know anyone who has been injured falling out of their hunting stand. Tree stand accidents are the leading cause of injury to hunters, accounting for over 90% of ER visits. One in three people who hunt from an elevated stand will have a fall resulting in serious injury. With a few simple rock climbing skills and equipment you can prevent injury and have a system that is very lightweight, strong, and versatile. Commercial systems cost upwards of $100. This will provide you with an affordable option that you can use in many different situations. Clinic taught by OPC Director Mark Morrissey, who came up with the idea while swaying in the wind last year 30 feet up a rickety old stand on the family farm. We will do a complete walk through of the set up outside with a tree stand on sight to practice. Questions ? Contact Mark Morrissey at 755-3900 or
