MI: Man shot and injured while deer hunting
Gunshot leaves Cassopolis deer hunter injured
Posted Jan 2, 2009
CASSOPOLIS -- A Cassopolis man was shot and injured Wednesday
afternoon while deer hunting with some friends.
David MicKiewicz, 26, was deer hunting with two other persons not
identified in a press release from the Cass County Sheriff's Office.
Someone apparently shot at a deer. The round went through some woods,
however, and hit MicKiewicz.
He was taken to a hospital in Dowagiac and later transported to
Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo. A spokeswoman there Thursday
evening said he had been discharged.
Police said the case remains under investigation.
Michigan's regular firearm season for hunting deer is Nov. 15 to 30,
but the state also has a ``late firearm'' season in which hunters can
shoot anterless deer on private land between Dec. 22 and Jan. 1.
