Man shot on hunting trip

 May 7, 2005

A Union County man was in stable condition Friday night after he was shot in what wildlife officials describe as a hunting accident.

Tony Meltabarger was turkey hunting in the Plainview Community when another hunter shot him, according to Chris Upton, public information officer for the Union County Sheriff's Office.

Meltabarger was shot in the shoulder and face, Upton said. The two men were hunting separately.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency is investigating the shooting, Upton said.

Meltabarger was recovering at the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
