With a helpful picture of what a bow-hunter might look like?!??!?

No, a generic shot of a bowhunter.

An Alabama bow hunter is in critical condition after falling from a tree onto one of his own arrows

Dafuq? How does that even happen? Is this the bow hunter's equivalent of 'the gun went off while I was cleaning it'?

It sometimes suprises me how some people manage to think that hunting is comparable to shopping at wal-mart and act shocked when a hunter gets hurt or dies taking part in an activity that requires taking risk.

It is horrible accidents happens and I have respect for the family.  Just don't forget that they chose to take part.

Oh, good. One of my fears is that I would become the first person to shoot themselves with a bow and arrow. I mean, the few times I have tried bows, I have always had the arrow veer off in strange directions. I believe I am capable of shooting myself with one of those stupid things.

I also tended to throw my bat when playing baseball. Fortunately there was little danger of me hitting the ball and I gave up baseball at the tender age of seven because my Father tagged me out at second base. All the other Fathers were blatantly encouraging their sons with flubs even a seven year old couldn't believe were accidents.

He always blamed me for ending his youth. It's not my fault that he got married. Well, it was, sort of. But I didn't break both of his wrists shortly after I was born. That was his own fault. The dog left in disgust when my Mother brought me home and went to live with my uncle. Not my fault either, although it was. He was jealous. Tough titties. Sucks to be you.

If you see me coming, whatever you do, don't stand behind me.

Fark PETA brigade posts stating only "Good" in 3...2...1...

On a serious note, as a former archer there's a lot of ways to get hurt without being Elmer Fudd. It does sound like this guy should have been using a fall retention harness.

Some of the ways:

Pulling arrow out of target, suddenly releases and stab yourself with the arrow nock

If not checked arrows can shatter on release-leading to tail end puncturing wrist/arm

Compound bows can explode if strong comes off

In short, it's not overly dangerous compared to other sports, but it's also not for people who"think they know what they're doing".

Are you saying that statistically speaking, hunting is just as safe or safer then going to wal-mart and shopping?

If I am wrong I am listening, but that sounds strange to me.

And so you know, I am not anti-hunting. It just sounds like taking a gun trying to shoot an animal where there are other people trying to do the same thing, might include risks.

I've never attempted hunting anything but a subway rat that found its way into my apartment a few years back (I won), and I'm not anti-hunting either, but I too would think that if you are chasing and hunting a large animal with a weapon that is capable of killing it, there is some inherent risk in that activity.

Whenever I meet a grown man with broken leg around here it's always, "fell out of a tree stand." I guess spending $100 on a safety harness gets you kicked out of the Rugged Outdoorsmen club.

If I "fell out of a tree onto my own arrow", I'd just kill myself and finish the job, instead of facing the inevitable laughter from my fellow hunters about that kind of clumsiness. Really, that's even worse than shooting yourself in the foot at the range, like a friend of mine did, and having to deal with the hysteria from the cops who arrived to take the report

It's ironic that the only tree stand hunters I know shouldn't be climbing into anything, except or maybe a mobility scooter.

FTA, evidently his tree stand collapsed.   Then again, that's why that have safety harnesses that keep you from falling and impaling yourself.

I do a lot of deer hunting from a freestanding structure built on a Michigan farm. It's solidly built, but sometimes I wonder about the structural integrity of something built by a Michigander.

He was probably holding one of them in his hand when the tree stand collapsed, assuming the report is accurate. I could easily see it happening, just as people have fallen onto a knife they were holding. It might just be a freak accident, but there are also plenty of drunk and/or incompetent hunters in tree stands. It could go either way IMO.

If he fell on it he'd probably still get impaled, the cover would just keep you from getting cut while handling them.

True that, it just seems really improbable. I think tree-hunting is cheating anyway. Unless you're subsistence hunting, then it's smart
