Man shot in head while hunting possums

April 2, 2012

From KSAT.com and MySanAntonio.com

A man was shot in the head early Monday in what was described to authorities as an accident while hunting possums in south Bexar County by the San Antonio River.
Sheriff's Detective Louis Antu said deputies were called to the scene of the shooting about 4:11 a.m., but it took authorities about two hours to find Stephen Edward Davis, 35,  in the dark, rural area, even with the help of a San Antonio police helicopter.
Authorities found the wounded man and a companion in a brushy area as they flickered a flashlight toward officers.
Davis was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center, where authorities said he was in critical but stable condition Monday afternoon.
The companion was taken in for questioning, Antu said.
