NORTH COAST, Calif. – A Rodeo man died on Thursday when he was shot while hunting in the Mendocino National Forest.
Edgardo A. Godoy, 52, was hunting near Covelo when another hunter shot and mortally wounded him, according to a report from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.
At around 3:30 p.m. Thursday the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to mile post marker 11.2 on Road M1, located in the Mendocino National Forest, near Covelo, regarding the hunting accident, officials said.
Upon arrival sheriff's personnel learned from a witness that a member of a hunting party saw a wild pig approximately 70 yards uphill and across a ravine from his location. Not seeing Godoy, the hunter shot at the pig.
When the hunter went to the area where he last saw the wild pig, he located Godoy, who had suffered a single gunshot wound, officials said.
Upon further investigation it was determined that Godoy received a single gunshot wound to the lower abdomen, officials said.
