A Claremore hunter broke both his legs after falling nearly 20 feet out of his deer stand and is now recovering.

He said it was terrifying, painful, and totally preventable. Colby Clark’s advice for hunters is to wear their harnesses. He said he’s been hunting since he was 8-years-old and knows what he’s doing but he missed a step getting out of his deer stand and now he won’t be able to walk for a whole year.

Colby Clark was in his element at the end of deer gun season, 18 feet up in his tree stand, and had just shot a deer.

“I had been up there for four and a half hours by the time I fell,” Clark said.
