SD: Man injured in Brookings County hunting accident

Man injured in Brookings County hunting accident
Posted: Friday, Jan 2nd, 2009

A Rapid City man suffered minor injuries last Friday in a hunting accident near Brookings.

The hunting accident happened north of Brookings. It was reported to South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks officials at 12:30 p.m. that day.

Brookings County Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring said foggy conditions caused poor visibility on Friday, when a pheasant got up between 37-year-old Jon Pike of Aurora and 38-year-olf Kraig Wood of Rapid City. Pike didn't see the other hunter due to the weather conditions. He fired and struck Kraig in the forehead with a single pellet.

Kraig was taken to the Brookings Clinic, where he was treated and released.

No citations were issued in the mishap.
