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.
