JORDAN TOWNSHIP - A Dalmatia-area man was injured on the first day of rifled deer season when he was accidentally shot in the arm by a fellow hunter.
Jamie Gasiewski was in a hunting party participating in a deer drive in a "rolling field" in the southwestern part of Northumberland County Nov. 26 when he "got ahead of the drive," said William M. Williams, information and education supervisor for the Northeast Regional Office of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. When a buck ran back through the line, another hunter fired a round and shot another hunter in his party.
The shooter was Charles Erdman. He was using a Remington .30-06 Model 760 and shot Gasiewski through the forearm and bicep.
Erdman was charged with a summary offense of shooting at or causing injury to human beings.  Erdman could potentially lose his license.
