MAN INJURED DURING DEER HUNTING SHOOTING ACCIDENT

CAMDEN, Ohio -- A man was injured Monday after he was hit by debris during a hunting accident. The accident happened near Camden in Preble County.

Authorities said a father and his 43-year-old son were out deer hunting when the accident happened. Investigators said the father shot a deer and a fragment from the bullet's slug bounced off the deer and struck his son in the neck.

Medics removed the man to a local hospital, where he was conscious and breathing. The victim is expected to be OK and recover from his injury.

Monday was the first day of gun-deer season in the state of Ohio and officials said hunters will continue to hunt deer until Dec. 5 when the season ends. The state Division of Wildlife predicts more than 400,000 hunters will take to the field daily from a half-hour before sunrise to sunset.

The division anticipates a kill of 140,000 to 145,000 white-tailed deer during the week-long hunt.

Many non-resident hunters choose Ohio as a hunting destination for both quality of deer and hunting accessibility. Ohio has more than 1 million acres of land open to public hunting.
