Here is a prime example of complacency and stupidity and not using safety equipment. This is a short video clip of me shooting without a safety harness. Shooting

Looking back to my younger days I have to agree that using a safety device was for sissys as was using hearing protection. In one respect I was very lucky not to have seriously injured or killed myself by falling out of a tree stand and now I am paying the price of uncovered ears with some profound hearing loss at certain frequencies. Besides I can hear crickets all year long.
