IMPALED WITH OWN ARROW

12/1/2011 - Via e-mail -- Your cover story titled "Head Hunter" in the September/October 2011 issue of Torch was very interesting and hit close to home. Most people probably don't know how common falls from deer stands or trees are for hunters. When I was stationed at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., with security forces, my unit had to respond to an incident on the base where a bow hunter fell from a tree and was impaled by his own arrow. He tried to make it to his vehicle, but died before he got there.
