PA - Turkey hunter shot in face

Saturday, May 19, 2007

BUSHKILL TWP. | A 44-year-old Wind Gap man shot in the face Friday after being mistaken for a turkey was airlifted to St. Luke's Hospital in Fountain Hill.

Pennsylvania Game Commission officials said the victim was shot on the right side of his face while he was in a stationary position calling to turkeys just off state game lands in the township. The victim's name and condition could not be obtained Friday.

The shooter, a 33-year-old Easton man, was stalking turkeys when the incident occurred about 11:30 a.m., said Cheryl Trewella, information and education supervisor for the game commission's southeastern region.

Game commission officials said charges against the shooter are pending and will depend on the severity of the victim's injuries.
