Two Indiana turkey hunters shot on season’s opening day

April 25, 2012 at 07:11 PM

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Two men have been shot by relatives on the opening day of the spring turkey hunting season.

Indiana conservation officers say 55-year-old David Irion of Cicero mistook his brother, 35-year-old Brian Iron of Noblesville, for a turkey and fired his shotgun, hitting the younger man with pellets in the face and chest Wednesday in Morgan Monroe State Forest north of Bloomington. Because of the remote location, it took rescue crews several hours to locate the men and move the injured brother from the forest by hand and by off-road vehicle.

Meanwhile, officers say 26-year-old Jesse Boyle of Elberfield was airlifted to University of Louisville Hospital after being shot in the face, shoulder and neck by his father-in-law, 49-year-old Gerald Walton, also of Elberfield. They were hunting in Orange County.

OK you are 55 and 49 years of age and you are pulling the trigger without positively knowing what you are shooting at. They should be sent to the hunters safety course before they are allowed to ever handle a firearm again before someone gets killed by one of these two.
