Hunter Safety System announces photo contest

Every year, there are reports of hunters falling from tree stands; and often, the difference between life and death is at the end of a lifeline. The National Sports and Shooting Foundation reported in 2011 that more than 6,600 hunting accidents were related to tree stands. As hunting seasons open up around the country, we want to continue to encourage hunters to stay safe.
