    I just received word that Starville's Mickey Aldridge, who fished with me once a year down in Venice, La., passed away after falling from a tree stand recently.

    As I was processing this, I received a study about just how dangerous tree stands can be. The story is at www.ms-sportsman.com/details.php?id=764, and the vid is below.

    I'll never climb a tree again without a harness.

    It is hard to stress to people the importance of a safety harness. I truly don't understand why one would go without it. Even if you cant afford the more expensive ones, most new tree stands come with them. If anyone needs one and is willing to use it I would gladly donate one that I got with my Summit. Anything to save someones life or mobility. I don't leave home without mine!

    can't tell you how many times I've sat in a tree wihout a strap. Know it's dum, and I've gotten better about it.
