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
