Hunter Safety System Renews as a Whitetails Unlimited National Sponsor
Whitetails Unlimited President Jeff Schinkten has announced that Hunter Safety System has renewed as a WTU national sponsor. “Since Whitetails Unlimited began we have made safety while hunting a central part of our education mission, and Hunter Safety System is the industry leader in safety gear and products,” said Schinkten. “I’m proud that Hunter Safety System is continuing with their national sponsorship. Together we will continue to promote the message of being safe while hunting.”
Hunter Safety System was created two decades ago as a result of a relative’s fall from a tree stand. While there were no serious injuries in that incident, John and Jerry Wydner set out to develop and market an affordable, reliable, and well-made safety harness that would be comfortable enough for hunters to use every time they were in an elevated stand. Hunter Safety System now has multiple models of harnesses, including specific models for hanging stands, bowhunters, and crossbow hunters. They also have harnesses that incorporate odor-control technology, and a full line of lifelines and accessories to make hunting safer.
