SABATTUS, Maine -- Officials are investigating a hunting accident
that left a 10-year-old boy with non-life threatening gunshot wounds

Wednesday when 52-year-old Claude Bolduc of Bowdoin and his son were
duck hunting in a canoe on the Sabattus River.
The boy suffered pellet wounds to his calf and lower back and was
