VT - Hunter shot with an arrow

Brian and Tyler Flynn were bow hunting near their camp in Huntington during the evening of Saturday October 13th, 2007. Brian Flynn was hunting out of a ground blind when he heard a noise behind him so he exited the blind and saw what he thought was a bear. Brian Flynn shot an arrow at the bear which turned out to be Tyler Flynn sitting on a rock a short distance away from him. At the time of this incident Tyler Flynn was wearing a black fleece jacket.

The arrow struck Tyler Flynn in the upper back on his left side. The arrow lodged in his shoulder blade. Brian Flynn brought Tyler Flynn to the General Store in Huntington where he called 911 and met with rescue personnel. Tyler Flynn was transported to Fletcher Allen in Burlington where the arrow was surgically removed without incident. Tyler Flynn was expected to be released from the hospital on Tuesday October 16th, 2007.

A joint investigation was conducted between Vermont State Police and Vermont State Game Wardens. The investigation is continuing and at this time appears to be accidental. This incident will be sent for review by the Chittenden County State's Attorney when completed.
