Shooting wounds man four hours into deer season

November 4, 2011

A Mandan man was wounded in a hunting accident less than four hours after the beginning of deer season.

Morton County Sheriff's Capt. Lynn Woodall said the 61-year-old man was shot at approximately 3:15 p.m. Friday while hunting in Graner Bottoms. The man was airlifted to St. Alexius, mostly because of the condition of the area where he was hunting, Woodall said.

The deer hunting season opened at noon on Friday across the state.

Woodall said he could not release many details about the incident yet. The North Dakota Game and Fish Department also was involved in investigating the incident.
