As hunting season approaches, it’s time to remind everyone to please stay safe in the woods. Remember …

  • 1 out of 3 hunters will fall from a tree stand during a lifetime of hunting.
  • 80 percent of the injured will require some type of surgery.
  • 60 percent will have fractures.
  • 30 percent will have spinal cord injuries and fractures.
  • 10 percent will have permanent disability or paralysis.

Invest in your safety and learn how to use a full-body harness, otherwise known as a fall-arrest system (FAS). Eighty-two percent of hunters who fall from a tree stand do so because they are not properly restrained.
