MA: Hunter shoots shoots foot, loses toe

December 30, 2013

From Recorder.com

SHUTESBURY — This weekend was the end of black powder deer hunting season, and an Amherst resident shot more than he was looking for Saturday when he put a .50-caliber bullet through his foot.
 
The 50-year-old man was hunting in the woods east of the Town Hall on Cooleyville Road with a group of other hunters when the accident occurred.
 
“(He) was unloading his black powder, .50-caliber rifle when it discharged into his left foot,” Police Chief Thomas E. Harding said.
 
The Amherst Fire Department Ambulance Service transported the man to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, where, Harding said, according to the report the man’s left big toe had to be amputated. Harding said the man was otherwise fine.
