KS: Man injured in hunting accident



A hunter from North Carolina was hospitalized Monday after authorities said he was accidentally shot while hunting near Admire.

According to a written release from Lyon County Sheriff’s Detective Sergeant Travis Mishler, Nathan Lindeman of Wake Forest, North Carolina, was hunting with a group in north Lyon County when deputies were dispatched to the 1800 block of U.S. Highway 56 at 2:45 p.m. for reports of a shooting.

Lindeman, 54, reportedly drove himself to the Admire toll plaza after calling 911 for help. Mishler said Lindeman had several minor wounds from being struck with 12-gauge birdshot while he was hunting.

Lindeman was transported to Newman Regional Health by Emporia EMS with non-life-threatening.

According to information released by the International Hunter Education Association, the U.S. and Canada combined see around 1,000 hunting shooting accidents each year. Close to 10% of these hunting accidents are fatal.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Kansas Hunter Education offers a free education course online to students ages 16 and older. Upon successful completion of this course, students aged 16 and older will be issued a final hunter education certificate and hunter education card that can be printed from a computer.

Students 11 – 16 years old need to refer to the Traditional or Internet-Assisted Course for instructions on completing hunter education.
