The Dangers of Defective Hunting Stands

In order to get a better angle on his or her prey, deer hunters often set up in deer stands or hunting blinds to sit and wait for the perfect shot on their game. Deer blinds vary in height from at least 10 feet off the ground to sometimes as high as 18 feet, posing a possible threat of injury if the hunter falls from the deer stand. Deer stand falls can have serious consequences from broken bones to internal bleeding, endangering many lives each year.

Deer Stand Safety Tips

You cannot always control injuries that result from improper design or manufacturer error, but there are certain things you can do to stay safe in a deer blind. To stay safe in a hunting blind, you can follow these safety tips:

  • Always use safety restraints
  • Be sure to test your tree stand before using to ensure it can hold the desired weight
  • Never drink alcohol before or while you sit in a tree stand
  • Never hunt alone; if you fall, you may need someone there to assist you

By following these guidelines, your hunting experience can be much safer and you can avoid life-altering injuries. However, manufacturer errors from faulty safety harnesses to broken platforms or even defective locks can still result in injuries or even death no matter how many precautionary steps you take.
