The Perils of Tree Stand Hunting

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
We have had this discussions a few times at the Black Bear Blog. All too often we hear stories of hunters injured when falling from tree stands. This morning the Washington Post has a story of one man in particular who is suffering multiple injuries when he lost his balance and fell from his favorite stand.

The article recounts other accidents and the results of them and gives some comparative figures from nearby states about hunting accidents and what percentage are the result of tree stands.

It’s a bit of a doom and gloom article, but it should at least make you think twice about what you’re doing when you head up into your tree stand.

Previous stories about tree stand accidents are here and here.
