    Looks like Audrain has our first injury of the firearms season. I don't know if it's the first one statewide, but I doubt it. Someone fell 18' from their stand and broke both legs. Helicopter is on the way now to fly them out. Prayers go out to this hunter for a speedy recovery! Wear those harnesses!

    golfnut1969 You're not a golfer.

    A buddy I work with's Dad fell out of his stand getting in. Luckily he had his phone on him as my buddy doesn't hunt. My friend had to drive home to get his truck and then out to his property. His dad fell before dark. He didn't get to him until 10:30. He couldn't get him up because of the pain (why his dad didn't call 911 is beyond me). Anyway, ambulance couldn't get to him so the parametics strapped him to a board and had to take him in a pick up. Turns out he broke his back. No spinal cord damage, so he's going to be OK. They are saying a week or so in the hospital and then a few months bed rest.

    Hunter from Washington was going on Augusta Bottom Road (not sure if Warren or St. Charles County) and went off the road (the road is 18 feet high from the Missouri River bottom at some points) around 4:30 or 5 in the morning. Died. Careful out there folks!
