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.
