IL: Aurora man hurt in hunting accident at Silver Springs State Park


A 58-year-old Aurora man was hurt in a hunting accident Monday at Silver Springs State Park, according to Illinois Conservation Police. It happened at around 2:20 Monday afternoon.

Conservation police say a 37-year-old hunter, also from Aurora, accidentally shot the 58-year-old who suffered minor injuries from pellets. The 58-year-old was taken to an area hospital for evaluation and was released. The two men were dove hunting.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said the man who was shot is 64-years-old. The story has been updated to say that he is 58-years-old.
