VIRGINIA MAN DIES IN HUNTING ACCIDENT

Updated: Monday, Nov. 8, 2004 - 5:57 PM

FLINTSTONE, Md. - A 35-year-old Virginia man who was fatally shot by a companion was among several victims of hunting accidents reported to Maryland authorities over the weekend.

Natural Resources Police say Stamos Courpas, of Fairfax, Virginia, died after his turkey-hunting companion mistook his movements for a bird and shot him at about 10 a-m Saturday in Allegany County's Green Ridge State Forest.

Meanwhile, Corporal Ken Turner says a deer hunter fell 15 feet from a tree at Elk Neck State Park in Cecil County Friday. He says the bow hunter was treated at Shock Trauma for head, neck and leg injuries, and released.

Turner says two other hunters survived shootings over the weekend, and a hunter spent two nights lost in the Garrett County woods before being found Sunday.
