Back in the early 90's he had a very bad experience from a "BIG MAN" climbing tree stand that could have killed him. The weld broke on the standing platform and he loss his balance and the only thing that saved him was his safety belt. It slammed him up against the tree, wrenched his back, broke ribs and messed up his front teeth. He does not remember how he got down. It was a good thing that he was not hunting alone and a hunting buddy, Brad, was nearby and heard the noise and came to his rescue.
He has had two necks and one back surgery already under his belt, so this one-man hunting blind will surely come in handy for him to hunt from. He is really excited about using it and hopefully will harvest a deer this season in our great wild outdoors!
