WARDENS LOOK FOR CLUES IN HUNTING ACCIDENT

2 June 2004

Wardens with the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife are looking for a turkey hunter that accidentally shot another hunter Wednesday morning.

Wardens say around 7:30 AM, 24-year old Matthew Long was walking near the Androsoggan river in Auburn, between two farm fields off of Fletcher Road, when he was hit on the forehead with a bird shot pellet.

Long wasn't seriously hurt, but wardens want to question any hunters that were out near Fletcher Road to find out if they saw anything.

Rick Stone, a warden with Maine's Department of Inland Fisheries and wildlife said, "We don't know what the shooter was thinking when he pulled the trigger. If he thought he was shooting at a turkey or if he was shooting at a turkey and the other subject happened to be in the line of fire."

Stone said he doesn't know whether the shooter even knew he hit someone.
