PostSubject: AND THIS IS WHY I WANTED THEM AS OUR MAIN SPONSOR   Thu Jun 30, 2011 3:09 pm

October 18th 2008 finds myself laying at the base of a tree with a badly shattered wrist, two broken feet, and three broken vertebrae after my stand broke and I fell 19’ during a deer hunt.

Believe it or not, I took it all in stride, I had a partner who was now on his way out to call an ambulance. I knew my back was broken and the rest was obvious. I couldn’t lay there any longer, the pain was the most intense pain I have ever felt. Somehow I managed to stand up and I walked out the ½ mile (very slowly and gingerly I might add) where I met the incoming ambulance, and my buddy.

I can handle pain, and discomfort…it’s something I can control….but when I was in the hospital my wife arrived and for a few brief seconds, she had thought that I was paralyzed. I never told her this but I did manage a quick glimpse of her at that exact moment and to see the look in her eyes was more than I could bare…even to this day.

It was at that point that I realized that the fall was not about me…but about my wife and two daughters, how selfish can one be to put them at risk.

Rescue One CDS is the one item I now have that I never want to utilize, but if I do…. I’ll hug my wife and kids just a little bit tighter that night..

Thanks guys

Not the first time that I've heard a story similar to that. I have started wearing a safety harness in my climber stands for a couple of years now. Just lucky for the first 20, I guess. Can you post a link for rescue one, I don't think I've seen them before.

I've been wearing safety harnesses ever since I've been using treestands, don't matter what kind. Used to get made fun off with my old group. Sorry about your experience (can't believe you got up and walked in the condition you were in - that is amazing) and glad a lot of good came out of it Rick.... Family is everything. I'm real curious about Rescue One and will definitely check out the link.
