Archery deer season is well underway. Many deer hunters have likely already put their tree stands to good use this fall. Knox County conservation agent Dustin Snead says there are some safety tips to keep in mind while using tree stands.
Something else hunters should check on is the fall-arrest system and safety harness for their tree stand.
Snead adds there are also safety tips to keep in mind when climbing up into your tree stand.
The early portion of archery deer season runs through November 11th. The early youth portion of firearms deer season will be October 29th and 30th, with fall firearms deer season running from November 12th through the 22nd.
