IN: Falling from tree stands

November 21, 2009

...hunters using elevated tree stands or platforms should use a full-body safety harness to protect themselves in case of a fall. Falling from an elevated stand or platform is the most common hunting accident in Indiana. During the 2008 hunting season, 24 hunting accidents were reported to conservation officers. Falls from tree stands led to 15 injuries, resulting in two deaths.
