A Dixie County woman survived what appeared to be a shooting accident
while she was hog hunting Sunday.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission,
Candace Tryon Bordine, 26, of Old Town, was shot once through the back
at about noon.
FWC spokeswoman Karen Parker said the incident, being investigated as
a freak shooting accident, happened while Bordine was part of a group of
people hunting wild hogs with dogs along Horseshoe Beach Road.
According to investigators, Bordine was in the driver's seat of her
truck when a bullet traveled through the extended cab of the truck, went
though the back of her seat, into her back and exited out her stomach
before hitting the gear shift and landing on the front seat.
"She was taken to Shands (at the University of Florida) and she is
expected to survive," Parker said. "One of our officers recovered the
bullet, but we still aren't certain exactly what type it was and we
don't know who the shooter was."
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the FWC office at
The Dixie County shooting happened on the first weekend of the
general gun season in North Florida and was the only shooting injury
reported to regional FWC officers by Monday afternoon.
