Hunter shoots self in foot

A Mariposa man is recovering after slipping off a rock Upcountry and accidentally shooting himself in the foot.

The Amador County Sheriff's Office said Russell Kish told investigators he was hunting deer near Squaw Ridge, east of Bear River Reservoir, when he fell off of a large rock, simultaneously releasing the safety on his Winchester 300 magnum rifle and discharging it into his right foot. A sheriff's department spokesman said Kish walked for a short distance before being carried by his hunting partners to an all-terrain vehicle, and on to a California Highway Patrol helicopter and a waiting trauma unit at Sutter Roseville Hospital.
