LA: Man dies after falling from deer stand in Union Parish
October 11, 2012
A West Monroe man fell to his death while deer hunting in Union
Parish late Wednesday afternoon.
Otis E. Davis Jr., 69, was
getting down off his ladder stand about dark when the top strap
broke, causing him to fall 20 feet.
Davis, who was bow hunting on the Buckshot Hunting Club near Haile
in the eastern part of the parish, had followed all safety
precautions, but the ladder stand malfunctioned and apparently
caused the fall.
