MGC, I really don't care what the stats are regarding tree stand falls. It's an individual safety issue and it's not something the government should have a heavy hand in regulating.

Tree stand hunting is the main method of hunting in many parts of NY. I would rather the youth learn how to hunt from a tree stand properly and safely under the guidance of an experienced hunter rather than use trial and error on their own. The young hunters would certainly benefit from learning the proper way to hunt from a tree stand early in life rather than risk making a serious mistake later on in life.

There are many areas in western NY where hunting, especially bow hunting, is just not feasible without a stand.
