First Deer-Hunting Injury of the Season Occurs in Finger Lakes

11/18/2003

Deer season opened yesterday for much of New York state, with one report of a hunter wounded by another hunter in the Finger Lakes region.

State police in Seneca County say a group of 17 people were hunting in Sampson State Park when one of the hunters fired at a deer. The shotgun slug struck 33 year old Robert Davis of Waterloo in the tip of his nose.

Davis was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester for reconstructive surgery.

Troopers say all members of the hunting party were wearing blaze orange on their garments.

Deer season is open for the state's Southern Zone, which includes most of upstate New York north of Westchester and south of the Adirondacks. The season runs through December 9.

According to state officials, two deer hunters were killed and 36 were injured last year.
