    anyone dumb enough to be in a tree stand without a saftey harness, sounds mean to say but deserves what ever happens. yes,even if a deer come’s by and shoots him for a trophy on stupidity.

    A very mature comment by Rocco. Let me guess…this guy is a vegetarian. Typical; I guess plants aren’t living things. Just another miserable jerk.

      I agree !!

    Folks, there was a man not to long back who died from a tree stand fall & he was wearing a harness. It suffocated him. I have a friend who had on a harness & it collapsed his lung after breaking his ribs. He’s still in a nursing home. The families of these men certainly don’t need your “know-it-all” idiot remarks. Think before you feel the need to make asinine comments.

    The key is don’t climb atree to get a deer, Did the indians climb in trees to kill deer? I don’t think so.

    1. Alden the Ape says:

      Indians? I don’t know many people from India who are hunters. Native Americans would have never have climbed a tree to kill a deer, though.

    hey I’m apollock and I don’t drink whiskey and drive you idiot just take one shot at atime??????

    He got what he deserved. It’s better that some slope-skulled hunter takes a fall rather than killing or injuring an animal.

    I only wish that more hunters were injured or killed.

    1. Mal Hunter says:

      I wish you were dead too. Wear leather or eat any meat at all? You know you do.

      Burn in hell, Mal!

      1. Mal says:

        You would be wrong, Mal Hunter.I do not eat meat or wear leather. In fact, I’m a hunt saboteur. I’m the one that made this guy fall from the tree.

    2. Mac says:

      Hers another one boys..” I don’t believe in hunting so NO ONE should be able to hunt”. I dont believe in being a jerk but it obviously doesn’t stop you from being one.

  11. Bandit says:

    I hope you feel that way about your family members as well!

    My congrats go out to mk for words well put.. As for mal you don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground. I have hunted out of tree stands for more than 30 years and its a matter of being careful. Besides you could show a little compassion for the poor guy. You’ll be the first one to whine when you hit a deer with your car and say this state needs to do something about the deer population. Well they are it’s called hunting you moron and we slope-skulled hunters treasure it.

    Many such resues have taken place withint the station’s “viewing area”, but why is this the only one to get air time? KDKA relies on their viewing area when soliciting advertising sponsors but when it comes to news, we are lucky to see anything more than 15 minutes outside of the city! There have even been several fires or accidents resulting in death that don’t even warrant a mention on the broadcast! Hey KDKA – The majority of your viewers live out here in the boonies. Maybe you need to do a better job of covering stories that matter to them!

  14. SwedishSnus says:

    KDKA was about 12 hours late reporting the fatal hit-and-run on the South Side last night, but they can sure fill up their home page with up-to-the-minute sports garbage. HEY KDKA! SPORTS IS NOT NEWS!!!

  15. Ari Hait says:

    Why do you think KDKA was 12 hours late?? Because they didn’t sream “First on” or “Only On”? Their video looked like it was from last night. Same pictures as the other stations. Pay attention goofball.
