A Brownsboro man is recovering from surgery after falling out of his tree stand while hunting.

35-year-old Brian Rogers was hunting near Neal Drive and Tiger Road in the area of Sharp's Cove and Gurley.

Rogers told paramedics that he had just gotten into the tree stand and was getting ready to put on his safety belt when he saw a buck.

Rogers turned to fire, lost his balance, and fell about 18 to 20 feet.
