A hunting accident during a pheasant hunting trip at Willow
Slough Fish and Wildlife Area in Newton County sent one Lake Village
hunter to the hospital for an eye injury.
Danny Oliver, 39,
of Lake Village, suffered an injury to his eye around 11 a.m.
Tuesday when a single shotgun pellet fired by his hunting partner
struck him in the right eye.
Oliver was hunting with David
Young, 46, of Hebron, for pheasant. Young failed to notice that
Oliver changed location in the field before firing a single shot at
a flushing pheasant, and Oliver was struck in the right eye.
