Hunting accidents reinforce need for safety

December 12, 2011

From MyFoxAl.com

Two hunters injured within days of each other prompt hunting experts to reinforce the need for safety during the season. Investigators with the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office spent much of Monday investigating a weekend shooting that left a hunter injured.

Deputies say Sunday afternoon, two men were hunting on the same property, unbeknownst to each other. Detectives say one of the men claims he saw what he believed to be the reflection of a deer's eyes and fired two shots.

Instead, he shot another man in the torso. And Monday, officials with Oak Mountain State Park where investigating an incident in which a hunter claims he fell out of his tree stand and in doing so accidentally shot himself with his handgun.
