Man killed in hunting accident 

James Kenneth McAdams, 77, of 9132 Jacksonville Conway Road was killed early Friday in what sheriff's deputies described as a tragic hunting accident.

Pulaski County Deputy Sheriff Scott Terrell said he received a call about a traffic accident with a fatality but arrived to find McAdams slumped over the hood of his pickup and entangled in a cable from a gate pulled tight pinning him to the vehicle.

McAdam's great-nephew, Michael Hutchins, found his uncle and said they had planned on hunting that day when he discovered him and knew he was dead.

The incident occurred on Fortson Road, north of Jones Road, in the northern part of Pulaski County when McAdams apparently got out of his vehicle to open the gate, officials said.

Metropolitan Emergency Medical Services arrived at the scene, but Terrell said paramedics also couldn't find a pulse.

Deputy coroners Patrick Miller and Gerome Hobbs arrived and pronounced McAdams deceased. .
