I spend alot of time in the woods. I am always aware of my surroundings and looking for the obvious hazzards, bear, hornet nests, slippery surfaces, lyme disease carrying ticks, ect. A big danger most people are unaware of are widow makers. They kill alot of people per year. Remember to look up once in awhile for dead timber that is ready to fall and make you dead! Heres a great example of a widow maker. This tree has sat like this for two years now but eventually its gonna come down, hopefully no one will be standing under it.

Thanks for the post! I see stuff like this all the time in the hilltop, especially now, after the huge storm that hit not too long ago. last time i was up there there was one tree that was hanging on the slightest bit on a small vine

The word widowmaker is a term taken from the forestry and logging industry. Foolkillers and deadfalls also are used to describe widowmakers. 11% of all fatal chainsaw accidents are a result of widowmakers.
