A 49-year-old deer hunter was wounded Friday when he accidentally shot himself while hunting in Bedford County, state Game Commission officials said.

Commission spokesman Jerry Feaser also identified the man killed in a hunting accident Thursday as Blaine Allen Spickler, 47, of Kreamer, Snyder County. Spickler was shot in the chest by a hunter who was unloading a weapon inside a vehicle in Snyder County, Feaser said.

Six other hunters were wounded in accidental shootings Monday and Tuesday, Feaser said. Only two of the eight shootings reported in the first week of the state's rifle deer season involved hunters who were wounded by those shooting at a deer, Feaser said. The other wounds were self-inflicted or the result of an accidental discharge, he said.
