Glad you weren't hurt any worse than what you were, but I'm sure Dave would have giving you some more time off work if you would have just asked him, no need to fall out of your treestand lol.

Glad your O.k.

Glad you are OK and that you are sharing your lesson learned. The extra minute or two that it adds to climb with a harness attached is well worth it.

Can you share any more details about how the platform failed? There are lots of us on TnDeer who use Summits who would benefit from anything you know about the cause.
