A 35-year-old Campbellsport man was treated for facial injuries on Christmas Eve after he was hit in the face by the spray of a shotgun shell while hunting with his son, according to a Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department report.

The man told sheriff’s deputies he was rabbit hunting with his 12-year-old son on land in the Campbellsport area.

The man said his son fired at a rabbit and he instantly felt a burning and stinging sensation on his face, according to the report.

The man said his son did not point the 20-gauge shotgun directly at him, but he was standing in the path of the spray, according to the report.

The man was treated for four small pellet wounds on his face. The boy will not face charges, as authorities determined the incident was an accident.
