According to msnbc the man was attempting to light a propane heater in his partially enclosed deer stand when his clothes caught fire and fell from his deer stand.
The real irony was this:

It happens more often than you would think.


Guns don't kill people.


Deer stands do.

Yeah, they catch on fire from time to time too. It gets damn cold up in these parts. It's pretty common for hunters to use heaters like that. That guy must have had a gas leak though.

I used to deer hunt/guide on a ranch. Always improvising I'd take a roll of toilet paper and stick it in a coffee can then fill with isopropyl alcohol and let soak the night before. The blue flame is barely visible which is a plus not wanting to generate a visible light and heats a stand nicely too.

Only reason I'd be in a stand is to keep warm otherwise I'd go look for deer for the "rookies" Biggest deer I saw on that ranch was started a chainsaw and let it run next to a tree in a are I knew had some big bucks. Sure enough a big old guy came up to look and see what the noise was. Didn't shoot him as he was "pretty" good breeding material. I shot the culls/ugly deer. Won the ugly deer of the year award 2-times.

Culls were the deer that were the weaker deer that would usually die during competition for food like this year with the bad drought. I have seen deer die a slow death due to no food/drought before and it's not pretty

We used to do that to keep the belly pan of the truck warm so it would start in the morning, we used a tobacco tin, roll of toilet paper and soaked in diesel. Would burn all night. hi5.gif

Baiting is illegal in Canada but then here you just go buy your tag for $20 then go looking, no worries about trespassing on private land.

We'd use the diesel for tree stump removal, just cut down as low as you can go, drill a hole in the stump and fill with diesel several times over a few days. then light it, would burn all night and no more tree stump.

We'd save the dyneemite for fishin... chuckle.gif

I never thought of that for stump removal. We used to cut deep cross hatches with a chainsaw then pour fertilizer on it, would rot in a year or so but never over night blink.gif

We saved the dyneemite for clearing out the damn dam lol. My mother gor her blasting ticket over that beaver dam rofl.gif

Good tip on stump removal Taco cheers.gif Although with the price on fuel here I'd rather learn how to peacefully coexist with the stumps than use diesel on them chuckle.gif Saltpeter is commonly used here for such projects so it seems those crazy Canadians have the same methods hmm.gif chuckle.gif

chuckle.gif When my Mom took her blasting ticket at the college, they went out West to blow up stumps and rocks. Well rofl.gif this country is full of lady ranchers and you never saw bitch until you've met a lady rancher. They'll cut your fences, brand your calves, herd their cows in with your bulls and emasculate your husband all before your first cup of coffee. So the class carefully set the blasting caps, backed off a ways, lit the fuse and right then a lady rancher comes over the hill with a herd of cattle she's rounded up (hers? who knows) the top blew off the boulders, the cattle scattered and she lit into the college instructor and class with horse, lariat, feet, mouth and fists. She was some angry rofl.gif rofl.gif rofl.gif
