Tyler Man Injured In Hunting Accident
October 13, 2009
A hunting accident left one man with a bullet wound in his leg and he and
his partner were cited for not having a hunting license.
Smith County Game Warden Chris Green said he was called to a location off
County Road 2199 Saturday where a 22-year-old Tyler man apparently had shot
himself in the thigh.
Green said the man was carrying an SKS rifle and had a .45 caliber
handgun in his front pocket.
Green said when the man went to adjust the handgun it went off, sending
the bullet into his thigh before resting behind the knee.
He said the man was treated at a local hospital and released.
Green added the injured man and his hunting partner also were cited for
not completing a hunter's safety education course.
