Treestand Safety

Statistics have shown us that 1 in 3 hunters who use an elevated stand will have a serious injury or be killed during their lifetime from a fall.  This class not only covers the various types of stands and safety equipment, it also covers proper technique for using each of the stands. Our goal is to reduce the statistics.  After successfully completing this class students are allowed to use an elevated stand on our 3D Archery range. Range Officers supervise the students to ensure proper use of equipment and ALL safety precautions are followed.
