SC: Squirrel Hunting Accident

December 15, 2009

DNR shares safety tips for hunters

Gunfire sends a man to the hospital after a morning squirrel hunt on Johns Island.

DNR also says this time of year is when most hunting injuries occur as well. There have been two incidents in just two days in the Lowcountry. In the first, Charleston County deputies were called out to Wadmalaw Island Monday night, after they say a man intentionally shot at another man with a deer rifle.

Investigators were also called out to the 3800 block of Benjamin Road on Johns Island, where they say a squirrel hunting accident sent one man to the hospital.

"I don't really know what happened, but it was a freak accident," said John Logan. "He hunts all the time."

Logan says his brother accidentally shot himself because the gun wasn't properly secured.
