A tragic accident in Morganza has local hunters unnerved. Wade "Bronk" Allemont was in his tree stand when the cable holding him up snapped. He fell 15 feet and severed his spinal cord. Friends say he is paralyzed from the waist down.

Hunters say accidents like this one can't always be prevented. Despite dangers associated with the sport, many say they'll continue to hunt because it's something they love to do.
