MT: Montana Hunter Recovering After Being Shot

November 19, 2012

From KULR8.com

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — After an attempt to sneak up on elk went awry when he tripped and fell, a hunter shot himself in the abdomen and leg Thursday morning.
 
63-year-old Dan Risland of Paradise was hunting on a mountain and spotted four elk about 50 feet away. He says he switched off the safety on his rifle while moving forward, but hooked his foot on a stick.  He somersaulted and landed on the rifle, and it went off.
