How a Treestand Fall Nearly Killed Me

Treestand accidents are common among hunters—but most folks have an “it won’t happen to me” attitude.

Listen to the story of his long road to recovery, which was chock-full of hard days that had him thinking he’d never be able to climb into a treestand again.
