Man shoots himself with shotgun while hunting squirrels
A man from Boone shot himself with a shotgun Wednesday. The man was hunting squirrels with his shotgun when he shot himself in the hand while trying to get mud out of the barrel.
The man was taken to Trinity Regional Medical Center by ambulance, according to police reports. Hunting accidents like these occur all the time. While some of them are the result of hunters mishandling their guns, some occur because of a defective gun or other hunting product.
