MD: Bow Hunter Who Shot Himself Could Face Charges

December 12, 2012

From NBCWashington.com

Maryland Natural Resources Police say a bow hunter who accidentally shot himself could face charges.
 
That's because the hunter shot himself with a handgun he was carrying and not a bow. Sgt. Brian Albert says carrying a gun during bow hunting season is illegal for hunters.
 
The 45-year-old hunter called for help around 12:20 p.m. Tuesday.
 
The shooting occurred in the McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area.
