Hunters encouraged to focus on tree stand safety

DES MOINES– Tree stand accidents can happen to deer hunters of all skill levels and result in serious injury or death. In Iowa last year, four hunters fell from tree stands, resulting in personal injury.
To help prevent injuries, the Iowa DNR is offering the following safety tips:
• Always wear a safety harness when in a tree stand and when climbing into or out of a tree stand.
• A safety strap should be attached to the tree to prevent falling more than 12 inches.
• Always inspect the safety harness for signs of wear or damage before each use.
