JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

It is the season for deer hunting in Mississippi as more than 1 1/2 million deer hunters have hit the woods. The season for deer hunting with guns is just over a week old and already there have been three hunting accidents, one of them fatal.

Last weekend there were two incidents. A woman was fatally shot in the head in Neshoba County. In Hinds County, a gun accidentally discharged shooting a man in the shoulder and the bullet fragments hit the man's daughter. Both were treated and released from a local hospital.

Sunday, a woman in Jasper County shot herself in the foot causing her to lose two toes.
