MD - two hunting accidents

Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) is investigating a report Saturday (Dec. 10) of a hunting accident that occurred Friday morning, Dec. 9 in St. Mary’s County. A male individual from Chaptico was part of a group of about 14 hunters who were hunting deer in the Wicomico Shores area. At about 10:15 a.m. another member of the party allegedly shot the individual in the arm. The individual drove himself to St. Mary’s Hospital where he was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.

In a separate incident, NRP received a report Saturday, Dec. 10 of a hunting accident that occurred at 4 p.m. in Kent County. John E. Wiesner, 58, of Townsend, Delaware, was hunting deer on private property off of Black Bottom Road near Golt. Wiesner was hunting from the ground sitting between three trees with his shotgun leaning against one of the trees. Wiesner told NRP that he saw a deer and while reaching for his gun, knocked the firearm over which caused it to discharge. A shot struck him in the left foot. Wiesner then walked to his vehicle where he met his son who drove him to the Christiana Hospital in Delaware.
