STEUBEN COUNTY – A Ligonier man has been hurt in a deer hunting accident in southeastern Steuben County.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says shortly after 7:30 p.m. Saturday, 80-year-old Carl Folk, Jr. fell from his tree stand.
Conservation Officer Todd Lang says Folk was trying to climb down from his stand after legal hunting hours. With help from his son, Folk attempted to maneuver himself around to step off the platform of the tree stand and onto the ladder leading to the ground. He lost his balance and fell about 24 feet to the ground.
