BRATTLEBORO-- Vermont Fish and Game is urging hunters to use precautions during the hunting season.

On Sunday, the second day of deer season, a hunter shot himself in the foot in Halifax, said Kelly Price, Vermont Fish and Game Warden.

He said a small hunting party was unloading firearms on a back patio when one of the rifles was accidentally discharged. The bullet struck the man in the top of his left foot and exited through the bottom of his heel. Price said the man was transported to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital after the incident. The accident is still under investigation and injuries sustained were non-life threatening.
