Hunting Accident File > Articles

Another turkey hunting season has arrived and there's still no resolution to the death of David Stack, who was found shot in the back with a rifle following an opening-day spring gobbler hunt April 12 in Rockbridge County.

Aggressive work by state game wardens, plus a reward that totals $36,000, has failed to turn up the individual responsible for Stack's death. Wardens hope they will get some assistance though a session of "America's Most Wanted." The Fox network TV program has announced that it will air a program on the incident 9 p.m. Nov. 1. The popular TV series has a reputation of helping solve crimes that have baffled enforcement authorities. This is believed to be the first hunter death that it has covered.

From Maryland, Stack, 44, was shot while hunting on a farm/retreat he owned in Rockbridge County near Savile Hill. He was described as a lifelong outdoorsman who owned and operated a construction company with his brother. He left behind three children and a wife of 23 years.

Game wardens Lt. Steve Pike and Sgt. Steve Shires, both of the DGIF Special Law Enforcement Assistance Patrol, were interviewed for the program. They will be present in the studio during the airing of this episode of America's Most Wanted in hopes that viewers will call in tips. Also available for reporting information on this case and others is the DGIF Wildlife Crime Line: 1-800-237-5712 or [email protected].
