The thrill of the hunt

November 22, 2011

By Mannix Porterfield, Register-Hearld.com

Fog and light rain greeted deer hunters at first light across much of West Virginia Monday, the first day of the annual bucks-only firearms season.

Early on, one hunter became the first casualty.

A 65-year-old Morgantown man injured his lower back and left wrist while trying to ascend a homemade, wooden tree stand. The unidentified hunter fell backward 20 to 25 feet, landing on his back. He was being treated at Ruby Memorial Hospital. The accident is under investigation by Aaron Clevenger, a natural resources officer.
