Health officials recently reported that more people visit hospitals during hunting season from falling out of tree stands than any other hunting accident. State conservation officer Ken Kenyon tells KNIA/KRLS News that every tree stand that is purchased in a store now comes with a full body harness. Kenyon says that it’s very important to not only know how to use the full body harness but to practice using it every time you are in the stand. He adds that climbing into the tree stand and climbing down is when they see the most injuries occur.
