NE: Hunting accident survivor has a message

April 29, 2017


LINCOLN, NE -- Jeremy Hoefs is scarred by the shotgun pellets that ripped into him.

The Lincoln man said the day collapsed when another hunter mistook him for a wild turkey and pulled the trigger. Jeremy felt a sharp pain.

After spending several hours in the hospital Jeremy now wants to share his message as a lesson to hunters of all skill levels.

"Nebraska Game and Parks has workshops on hunter safety and classes. Even the Outdoor Education Center right here in Lincoln offers so many great classes. It's best to learn as much as you can because you never know what may happen."
