Unsafe tree stands could be months in the making

The tree stands you are getting ready to use during the current archery season or next month’s gun season may not be as safe as you remember them. According to the National Tree Stand Safety Awareness Foundation, there were approximately 3,000 tree stand-related incidents in 2018, which was down substantially from 2010. From the harnesses you should be wearing to the trees you use for your stand, a lot can change from year to year. DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha suggests an extensive checklist for you to go through to make sure you stay safe this hunting season.

So far during the archery season this year, over 17,000 deer have been harvested in Wisconsin. That includes 324 in Door County and 246 in Kewaunee County.
