Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Feb 3, 2018

Treestand safety is a hot topic. And it should be. Studies show that treestand accidents are by far the leader in serious injury or death to a hunter.  There have been some major advancements in safety though the years compared to the days when the hunter would limb climb a tree into a wooden built treestands.  The harness has also come a long way since the early days, the attachment straps aren't as limiting, devices like the Life Line now keep us attached to the tree, but suspension trauma, should you slip, is still a major concern. Wayne Borgardus has invented a device that is a game changer and address all these issues.  The device  is lightweight, attaches easily to the tree or to a Life Line, supports a hunter of the larger or smaller variety, works with any harness, can be used over and over, is affordable, and will slowly and safely drop you to the ground should fall.  Here's the story of the Treestand Wingman.
