Sat in treestand, saw a cow doe, then the seat breaks out from underneath me, down 12 feet, i was thankful i had a support under the seat to help slow my fall. Angry, wet and covered in mud, I sat in an alternative area, on top of a bucket..lol
within 5 minutes CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH and there he is, a VERY NICE! 6 point, one of the largest 6's ive seen, its missing its browtines, so it would have been a great 8 just to let you guys know on the size, I drew back, kathud double lunger, 25 yards later on a blood trail stevie wonder could follow was my buck. The arrow passed through the deer completely and jammed into a tree, gotta love Muzzys, bad to the bone! Pics will be added later!! Good luck guys!

thanks guys for support, yeah hunting fool43, i did tumble out of a tree stand...in early july i believe, maybe late june. I normally use a safety harness when im in one of y portable treestands, but the one i was in was a perminent wood blind, huge gucci, seat, and no real way to fall...at least i thought, when i get it fixed(after season) i think ill wear a safety harness even in it!!
