A friend fell off a tree stand and I don't know the exact circumstances, but he did break some vertrebrae.  He is ok now, but will no longer hunt out of a tree stand.  In fact, he has asked me to help him build a ground blind.

Fella's remember to let someone know where  you hunt and when to exspect you back home. Hanging upside down for two days like that would kill most hunters!! ##$%#1119

That's amazing, most folks don't last more than several hours. I sure hope he recovers from this.

I agree with buckone1, let people know where you will be hunting and when you are expected to return.

Wonder how it happened? We can never be too careful but bottom line, make sure you wear a harness and safety line and use it correctly. I feel for this guy and his family. Something we love so much can turn horrible in a second. Hope he fully recovers.

I fell 14 ft straight down flat on my back still going to chiro for adjustments .    an old metal treestand I was trying to relocate broke in half after I walked up to the top to tie it off , I just was lucky ptl  I didn't land on the broken part of the stand instead I hit the GA  clay flat on my back.  I dislocated my pelvis messed up my back and neck spent many sessions and adjustments getting back in line.      PRAISE THE LORD GOD ABOVE  I CAN STILL HUNT .    so now I always use the HUNTER SAFETY SYSTEM WHEN I CLIMB  I ALSO WILL HUNTING ON THE GROUND IN A GOOD BLIND THIS YEAR.               MAY GOD BLESS AND HELP ALL YOU HUNTER IN THE CAROLINAS    LOOKOUT FOR FLORENCE   @--0--0131 @--0--0131 @--0--0131

I hope they did get out. My FD Chief’s son is a FF with N. Charlston FD. He has to work it.

I offered my old neighbors from my GA days to drive 8 hours from Summerville SC to my new home in FL. They said they will ride it out. No contact from then so I hope they are OK.

I saw how the waves breached the dunes in TV. Very scary. The big flood is yet to come.

Some of my buddies  were in the news, They went to FL for Irma. I was on the Katrina detail. I was a swift water responder. It aint easy.

News article:

New Jersey Search and Rescue Team Deployed to Carolinas

West Trenton, N.J. – Colonel Patrick Callahan, of the New Jersey State Police, announced the deployment of 80 members of New Jersey Task Force 1 to assist with search and rescue operations as Hurricane Florence moves towards the Carolinas.

The highly trained team, comprised of police, fire, and emergency medical personnel, was deployed from New Jersey Task Force 1 headquarters in Wall Township late last night. The task force members are skilled in a variety of search and rescue operations including swift-water rescue, which will allow them to conduct rescue operations in a flooded areas. All costs associated with the deployment will be fully reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

"The team being deployed to North Carolina represents a significant portion of the overall task force, but a larger portion of the group and equipment will remain in New Jersey ready to respond to any potential emergency at home," said Colonel Patrick Callahan. "And although the impact of Hurricane Florence remains uncertain, what is certain is that the highly-trained men and women of New Jersey Task Force 1 will be in place ready to assist those in need."

New Jersey Task Force 1 is managed by the New Jersey State Police and the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management and has members from all 21 New Jersey counties. The task force is designated by FEMA as 1 of only 28 nationally recognized urban search and rescue teams in the country. This designation means that New Jersey Task Force 1 has the capabilities to respond to a disaster anywhere within the United States.

Since receiving this designation in 2016, the task force has deployed to Hurricanes Matthew, Harvey, and Irma as well as local emergencies throughout the state. As Colonel Callahan was on hand to brief the task force before their deployment and wish them well, he also thanked the 25 members currently deploying on the Hurricane Florence mission who, 17 years ago today, also answered the call to deploy to Ground Zero in the immediate aftermath of the September 11th Attacks.
