UT: 17-year-old injured in hunting accident in Logan Canyon

October 5, 2012

From DeseretNews.com
LOGAN — A 17-year-old boy was injured Thursday during a hunting accident in Logan Canyon.
The boy had been hunting for deer with muzzle loaders in the Boulder Mountain area of Logan Canyon with his father and uncle, according to the Cache County Sheriff's Office.
While driving in the canyon, the group spotted several deer. The 17-year-old and his uncle jumped out of the truck and put primers on their guns, police said.
As the deer ran off down a ravine, the teen walked about 10 feet ahead of his uncle. The uncle had cocked his gun but decided not to shoot, police said. The gun then accidentally fired, and bullet fragments hit the 17-year-old's right foot, calf, thigh and hand.
