Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace Sidelined After Treestand Fall

Doctors say it will be 10-12 weeks before Pace can put weight on his left leg and longer until he can stand in a boat.

Cliff Pace, winner of the 2013 Bassmaster Classic, won’t be able to defend his title this year due to a deer hunting injury. Pace was bowhunting near his home in Petal, Mississippi when he fell. His hand slipped as he was climbing down the treestand steps. Pace was able to land on his feet, but his left leg landed in a hole. He broke the leg in two places and tore the ACL in left knee.

Pace called a friend to come help him out of the woods once he realized the severity of his injury.

“The whole 45 minutes I was waiting for him to come I was thinking about [the 2014 Bassmaster Classic in] Guntersville,” he said.
