IN: One injured in Pulaski County hunting incident


Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a hunting incident that occurred Thursday on private property in Pulaski County.

Just after 9 a.m., Dave Berry, 69, of Roachdale was dove hunting along a Sandy Prairie Hunt Club field when he was struck by a gunshot.

Initial investigation has revealed that Berry began searching for a downed dove in an uncut cornfield when he walked in the direction of another group of hunters.

At the same time, a juvenile hunter attempted to shoot at a low-flying dove striking Berry approximately 35 yards away with pellets from the 20-gauge shotgun.

The incident remains under investigation and no further information is currently available.

Indiana conservation officers remind all hunters to take responsibility for their safety and the safety of those around them. If changing your known location, be sure the others around you are aware.
