Three hunting accidents on Saturday's opening day

The most popular hunting day of the year--the opening of modern firearms deer season--did not pass without incident in Frederick County.

On Saturday, a 51-year-old hunter suffered internal injuries and to his back and ribs when he fell 15 feet from his tree stand near New Cut Road in Rocky Ridge. The victim told Natural Resources Police officers his foot slipped off the top rung of the ladder. He was not wearing a safety harness at the time of the accident.

Raymond Daryl Weeks, 51, of Frederick was charged with negligent hunting after an officer found a shotgun slug embedded in a house in the 7900 block of Jackson Court. Also, officers were called to the 8300 block of Water Street in Walkersville for someone shooting at a house.

NRP says investigations are continuing in both of those cases
