Hunting Incidents Mark Beginning Of Deer Season

20 November 2003

The last week has been seen a succession of accidents, injuries and death involving hunting and guns in the woods.

William Tart, 31, of Coats was injured Friday when he was shot accidentally while hunting south of Four Oaks, Dewey Parchman of Lillington died alone in a tree stand and last week, 14-year-old Daniel Sheets of Broadway was shot accidentally and killed by a friend in woods near his home, who has been charged with involuntary manslaughter. The group of friends were wearing camouflage gear and shooting guns in the woods.

During the past year, there have been 41 hunting accidents statewide four resulting in fatal injuries. Twenty-eight of the shooters involved in the accidents were 13 or younger.

Six of eight hunting deaths in the last year in North Carolina came from people who fell out of tree stands or had other, non-gun shot related injuries.
