CA: 3 hunters shot on opening day of dove season

Three hunting accidents reported at dove opener

September 2, 2009

EL CENTRO, Calif. —

… Department of Fish & Game Lt. Joe Brana and his crew of state game wardens and federal agents stayed busy with three hunter-related shooting accidents that sent one hunter with face wounds to the hospital in Brawley. Two other hunters suffered minor arm gashes from stray shotgun pellets.

“It's rare that we have three like that, but we know a lot of accidental shootings go unreported because hunters are embarrassed,” said Brana, who worked two of the shooting incidents. “I attribute it to hunters getting excited on opening day, shooting at low-flying birds and just not paying attention.”.
