I am thinking of buying a three pack. anyone use them? I have been hunting out of hang on stands lately. I see no need to use with a climber

Re: Lifelines?

I use them on hang ons. Definitely feel safer with the life lines. Climbers, I use by full body harness up and down.

At 61 years young, still climbing, but starting to think about giving it up and hunting from the ground.

You just can't be to safe.

Re: Lifelines?

I got one on every stand, No reason or excuse not to use them, lifelines cost less than the stand, the ladder or steps or the vest so why not.

Re: Lifelines?

Buy em. You'll feel safer, and hunt better. Safe and silent climbing on hang-on's and ladder stands.

Mechanical failure can happen on climbers too. I personally know a guy who was using a hand climber (I won't mention the brand, but it's a popular one.). The pin on the top piece sheared. He was left hanging upside down, boots stuck in bottom piece until he managed to wiggle his feet out and fall 10 feet to the ground. Luckily okay. Lone Wolf makes a nice climbing tree strap for climbers. Quicker than the traditional types. Lone Wolf Rope

Your family will thank you. Happy hunting!

Re: Lifelines?

Once my kids started hunting, we even use them on the ladderstands. Even though it is a ladderstand it is nice knowing they are tied off while climbing up.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: Lifelines?

I use the Hunter Safety System Lifelines and have been happy with them. I also have one that is like a retractable seatbelt thing that was expensive, but I don't care for it. I forget who makes it.

Re: Lifelines?

Something I've learned is to take the carabiner off the prussic knot and carry it out with you when you leave the stand.

Those biners are about $10/per and some people where I hunt have sticky fingers.

Re: Lifelines?

I have a HSS lifeline for every lock on. Only time I don't use one is when I'm in my climber, and then I have a full body HSS, and then I'm locked in using the harness to the tree as I climb. No sense giving my retirement to my wife in the form of a death benefit.

Wishing I was at camp!
