HSS Instructional Video Shows How To Properly Hang A Ladder Stand

 
Danville, Ala. (Dec. 2, 2016) — Hanging a ladder stand sounds pretty simple. But doing it properly by keeping safety first and foremost isn’t always the way it is done. That’s why Hunter Safety System, the company dedicated to saving hunters’ lives, has launched a new instructional video specifically on this topic on the popular video-sharing website, YouTube. 
 
This new 7-minute, 30-second video addresses every detail of hanging a ladder stand and how to be safe the entire time. Staying connected 100-percent of the time is of paramount importance. You can’t fall but so far if you are connected at all times. In fact, during the course of the video, the HSS staff demonstrates various obstacles that could occur while setting up the stand that leads people to unconnect themselves. The video shows the safe and proper way to address these obstacles should you encounter them.
 
“Each year, we hear about hunters who fell from their treestand and sustained life-altering injuries or even died,” said Jerry Wydner, president of Hunter Safety System. “With educational videos like this one, we at Hunter Safety System are hoping to help hunters avoid these tragedies.”
 
Treestand accidents continue to be the number-one cause of serious injury and death to deer hunters. Recent data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) estimates there were approximately 5,600 treestand incidents in 2015 that resulted in injury. Don’t become a statistic; stay connected from the time your feet leave the ground until they return, and stay educated with YouTube videos like this new one from HSS.
 
This new video has been added to Hunter Safety System’s YouTube channel, which is a great resource for information for both Hunter Education Instructors and hunters. To stay informed and have the most up-to-date Hunter Safety System videos sent directly to you, simply hit the subscribe button.
