Hunters Hurt on Second Day of Hunting Season

3 December 2003

Two days into the hunting season and we have seen at least two accidents in our area...one man is in critical condition. It's a hunter's worse nightmare. A shot meant for a deer...ends up hitting another hunter. That is what happened to 36-year-old Gerald Weaver of Lake City. Around 10:30 this morning Weaver was hunting near Tannery Road in Girard when he came between a buck and a teenager hunter. When the teenager took his shot at the buck, he hit Weaver in the hip. Weaver lost a lot of blood before being airlifted to Hamot Hospital. He remains in critical condition.

Another incident in Venango county has been reported tonight. Apparently a hunter may have self-inflicted the wound. No name or condition is available.

Also being reported tonight, a bullet went into a house on Middle Road in Girard. Luckily no one was injured.
