SCOTCH GROVE (KWWL) -

The Jones Co. Sheriff's Office says a Cascade man was injured after falling from a deer stand in a tree Saturday morning.  They say 24-year-old Brad Staner was bow hunting from a tree stand when he stood up to try to shoot a buck and the strap to his deer stand broke.  Staner fell 14 feet to the ground.  He used his cell phone to call a friend, who then contacted authorities.  He was found in a wooded area on the bluffs of the Maquoketa River near Ebys Mill Rd.  He was taken to a Dubuque hospital with possible back injuries.
