CASCADE, Iowa – A 24-year-old Cascade managed to call for help
after toppling 14 feet while bow hunting in Jones County sometime
Jones County Sheriff Greg Graver said in a news release Brad
Staner was attempting to shoot a buck from his tree stand somewhere
three miles north of Co Road on Eby’s Mill Road when the strap to
the stand broke and he lost his balance.
Deputies said Staner used his cell phone to call a friend who
contacted authorities. Jones County deputies along with the Cascade
Fire Department and Reiff Ambulance services searched for Staner
with some of his friends when he was located around 11 a.m. in a
wooded area near the Maquoketa River, they said.
Staner was transported to Finley Hospital in Dubuque with
possible back injuries.
