MS: Hunter/Fisherman injured in tree stand fall

January 27, 2014

From QON.com

Defending Bassmaster Classic champ Cliff Pace will miss the 2014 tournament at Guntersville after severely breaking his leg in a deer-stand fall on Friday, Jan. 25.
 
Pace fell from a treestand and broke his left leg in two places while bow hunting for deer near his home in Petal, Miss.
 
“I was actually done with my hunt and climbing down from the stand when the accident happened,” Pace said. “It was a cold day, even here in southern Mississippi, and I had cotton gloves on. Part-way down my hand slipped out of the glove, and that’s when I fell.”
 
Pace tried to push away from the tree so he wouldn’t land on his back or head. He was successful on that front, landing on his feet. But his left foot landed in a hole and jarred his leg enough to break it in two places, once above the knee and once below it. And in the process, he also tore the ACL in his left knee.
