Hunting Season in Otter Tail Country: Be Careful!

I checked the Inforum website (the online version of Fargo, ND's newspaper, The Forum) after returning from my own deer hunting trip (unfortunately not in Otter Tail County, but Western North Dakota) to see news of not one, but three accidents in Otter Tail County during deer hunting's opening weekend.

Only one accident was gun related - a young hunter shot himself in the foot accidentally when seeing a deer. The other two accidents involved faulty tree stands, in which hunters wait on a platform in a tree. The bottoms of the wooden platforms broke or gave out, resulting in injuries from hunters falling to the ground.

We here at Otter Tail Country would like to remind you all to be careful in your outdoors endeavors - and these hunting mishaps are a great reminder as to how important safety is.
