A 32-year-old man is recovering following a hunting accident just north of Old Oneida Road in the outer district of Rome.

According to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, the man was hunting alone in a tree stand when he fell approximately 30 feet.

The fall is believed to be due to a defective strap securing the stand to the tree. No weapon was discharged and the man was transported to St. Elizabeth’s with non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation was turned over to NYS Conservation Police as the incident is considered an Elevated Incident Hunting Accident.

  1. So there was a defective strap and a nimrod took a tumble. I’ve been saying that tree stands could be a focus for some monkeywrenching.

    • Good luck, there everywhere it seems. Hunters are scoring plenty of accidents on their own, based on the number of accident reports.

      And how unnatural for a hunan to hunt from high up in a tree anway. No other large animal sits a limb 20-30′ off the ground and tries to kill prey from so far away. Cougars would not jump from that high. An owl maybe, but they don’t go after deer or drive home in the luxury of a new heated pickup.
      Who do hunters think they are anyway? Gods gift to wildlife “recreation”?….
