OK: Cherokee County Deputies Investigate After Deer Hunter Shot
December 2, 2013
CHEROKEE COUNTY, Oklahoma -
A Green Country man was
pierced by a bullet while walking out of the woods on a deer hunting
trip. John Mason was shot Friday evening while hunting on public
land in the Welling area, east of Tahlequah.
The sun had all
but set Friday evening, when Bill jumped out of his deer stand,
headed toward his son's hunting spot.
“It was about 5:37,
and I heard two shots,” Bill said.
Two shots followed by a
scream that’s still ringing in his ears.
The bullet pierced
John's right arm and shoulder before going out his back.
They didn’t see the shooter, but Bill thinks the shot was taken
from the ground no more than 50 yards away.
