wrapping up a morning deer hunt.
“At this point is appears
the two were walking out after hunting in the morning and one of the
guns discharged,” said Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Department Chief

other boy ran to a nearby house to get help and call 911.”
Myers said a bolt-action 30.06-cal rifle was recovered at the scene.

serious but stable condition about 1 p.m. Thursday.
