VA: Man Killed in Deer Hunting Accident

Man Killed in Deer Hunting Accident

Dec 7, 2008

A Stafford man is dead after being shot while deer hunting in Greene County on Saturday. The accident happened in the Haneytown Road area.

A spokesperson for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries says the man was changing locations when a member of his hunting party mistook him for a deer.

The victim was not wearing the blaze orange that hunters are required to wear during deer hunting season.

Authorities say it's too early to determine whether charges will be filed.
