Man shot during turkey hunting

May. 4, 2011 |

A Connersville man is in serious condition at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis after being shot while turkey hunting Wednesday in Fayette County.

Mike Bannon, 34, was hunting with friend Jeremy Grizzell, 35, around 8:40 a.m. along West Allentown Road when the shooting occurred, Indiana Conservation Officer Gary Catron said in a press release.

The men were walking an uphill trail about eight miles southwest of Connersville when Bannon was hit by multiple shotgun pellets, Catron said. Bannon suffered injuries to his face, neck and upper chest, he said. Bannon was taken from the scene by medical helicopter.

Kevin Bramer, 41, of Laurel was identified as the shooter by Indiana Conservation Detective Sgt. John Cannarella, according to the press release. Bramer was using turkey calls and was stationary at the time of the shooting, Cannarella said.

Indiana's 2011 spring turkey season began April 27 and continues through May 15.
