Lisle hunter released from hospital after hunting mishap
From Journal Staff Reports

A Lisle man who was shot in the face while small game hunting in Groton on Saturday was released from the hospital as of Monday.

William McAllister, 28, was the only member of his group not wearing hunter's orange, Lori O'Connell, a N.Y. Department of Environmental Conservation spokeswoman, said. After a dog flushed a grouse out from hiding, a hunter shot for the bird and hit McAllister.

O'Connell said the man was taken to Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse and was in fair condition at the time. She said the injuries were not life-threatening.

The ruffed grouse season in New York outside the Adirondacks and northern game zone is Oct. 1-Feb. 28.
