It's archery season now for deer hunters.

The season began yesterday..

Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officer

Shawn Brown is from the Union Mills area.

He says hunters on tree stands should secure themselves because

many of the fatal falls are from hunters deciding not to wear a harness....

Brown says always put on a harness no matter what the circumstances....

A 33 year old man not wearing a harness was seriously injured Sunday in a fall 

from a tree stand in the northeast part of the state

Archery season runs through the end of the year.
