Man Shot in Hunting Mishap

AFTON - A downstate man was injured in a hunting accident Saturday morning in Walker Township, according to reports from the Cheboygan County Sheriff's Department.

Todd Modzelewski, 35, of Lake Orion, Mich., was shot in the upper portion of both legs by fellow hunter Sean Williams, 33, of Clinton Township, Mich., state reports.

Deputies said that there were several people hunting out of Savage Cedar Ranch in Afton when a wounded boar charged Williams. Williams reportedly shot at the boar several times with a handgun. Reports state that it appears that Williams was thrown off balance by the boar, and fired again at the boar as it fled.

Modzelewski was northeast of Williams at the time of the incident and was hit by one of the rounds, state reports. Deputies said that Williams did not know of Modzelewski's location at the time.

Modzelewski was transported to Northern Michigan Hospital in Petoskey by the Cheboygan Ambulance. This accident remains under investigation.
