CASCADE, Iowa – A 24-year-old Cascade managed to call for help after toppling 14 feet while bow hunting in Jones County sometime Saturday morning.

Jones County Sheriff Greg Graver said in a news release Brad Staner was attempting to shoot a buck from his tree stand somewhere three miles north of Co Road on Eby’s Mill Road when the strap to the stand broke and he lost his balance.

Deputies said Staner used his cell phone to call a friend who contacted authorities. Jones County deputies along with the Cascade Fire Department and Reiff Ambulance services searched for Staner with some of his friends when he was located around 11 a.m. in a wooded area near the Maquoketa River, they said.

Staner was transported to Finley Hospital in Dubuque with possible back injuries.
