The Chackbay Volunteer Fire Department usually only rescues one
hunter a year who's fallen from a tree stand, but it's rescued two
within the last week and a half.
On Sept. 7, a hunter fell
out of a tree stand in woods off of La. 307 near La. 182. He was
unable to move but managed to call 911.
Another man fell out
of a tree stand Thursday in a wooded area just off of Forty Arpent
Road. He was able to call his wife, who knew exactly where he was
and was able to lead Chackbay firefighters to his location.
