When Hunter Safety System launched its company 15 years ago, it opened a new category in the hunting industry. Today, Hunter Safety System is a household name among those who hunt. Since its inception, the company has set the standard for innovative, state-of-the-art safety harnesses. This tradition continues today.
"We have come a long way since our first harness, yet we continue our focus on ensuring the safety of hunters," Hunter Safety President/Owner Jerry Wydner said in a statement. "We will continue to develop and offer products that will keep our hunters coming home to their family and friends after each hunt. That is what we do."
