TN - man shot by a member of his own hunting party

Hunting Accident - Apr 2, 2007

(WVLT) - A Knoxville man is in serious condition after being shot by a member of his own hunting party.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says Rick Dailey, 47, was shot by William Snyder while turkey hunting in the Chuck Swan State Forest and Wildlife Management Area on Saturday.

TWRA says Dailey had a turkey decoy sticking out of the vest he was wearing.

Officials say Snyder accidentally shot Dailey because he thought he saw a turkey.

Paramedics took Dailey by Lifestar to U.T. Medical Center to be treated for puncture wounds to the neck, face, and upper body.

This is the second East Tennessee Hunting accident in just two weeks.
