    Hunter Killed In Fall; Another Shoots Own Foot

    POSTED: 10:11 am EST November 27, 2007

    BERLIN, Pa. -- A Somerset County hunter died after falling from a tree stand on Monday, the first day of rifle deer season.

    The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat reported that Roger Deem, 56, of Meyersdale, died after falling about 20 feet from a stand in Brothersvalley Township.

    State police called the death accidental.

    Hunter Shoots Foot

    A Pennsylvania Game Commission spokesman said an Irwin, Westmoreland County, man shot himself in the foot with a rifle on Monday in Armstrong County.

    The man's name wasn't immediately released.

    Spokesman Jerry Feaser also said Monday's rainy weather made for challenging conditions. He said some hunters likely headed in early, while others stayed out despite the rain and fog.

    The season continues through Dec. 8.

    :dunno: If I shoot myself or fall out of my stand while hunting I fully expect people to laugh at me.

    my cousin fell out of a tree stand and broke his ankle and leg. He's now in a cast until about mid-december. This was for archery season though. Sucks either way, but it's only brought about by carelessness.
