IN: Hunter's fall highlights danger of tree stands

October 1, 2013

From ChestertonTribune.com

A Brookville, Ind., hunter was injured on Monday after falling from his tree stand in Franklin County.
 
Matthew Wolfrum was strapping a 17-foot ladder tree stand to a tree. At some point the stand twisted and slid from the side of the tree, causing Wolfrum to free-fall to the ground.
 
Wolfrum landed on his right side and sustained two separate fractures to his tibia, a fractured ankle, scratches, and a bruised lower back.
 
In 2012 Indiana recorded 29 hunting accidents not involving the use of a firearm, and 27 of those were tree stand accidents, the DNR added.
