Woman injured in fall from deer stand readies for Wisconsin opener
TREGO, Wis. -- It's hard to keep a good hunter down. But that's where Rick Harder plans to keep his wife, Bonnie, when Wisconsin's gun deer season opens Saturday.
On the ground.
Safe in a portable ground blind.
It was almost a year ago, on the third day of Wisconsin's gun season last fall, when Bonnie Harder fell 14 feet from a ladder-style deer stand, crushing a vertebra in her back. She spent the next two months learning to walk again.
