Man hospitalized after he was shot while hunting

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A 24-year-old Broadwater County man remains hospitalized after he was shot in the face while hunting over the weekend.

Susan Gregg-Hanson is a spokeswoman for Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. She said yesterday (Tuesday) that Luke Keuffer was listed in serious condition.

Meagher County Undersheriff Jon Lopp says Keuffer was shot Sunday morning with a hunting rifle. He declined to release further details because the case is under investigation.

The shooting occurred in the Blacktail drainage off Confederate Gulch. That's according to an earlier report by Broadwater County Sheriff Brenda Ludwig.

Broadwater County deputies responded to the initial call at about 8 a.m. But the Meagher County Sheriff's Department is handling the investigation because the shooting occurred in that county.
