NORMAN TWP. — A Boyne Falls man was injured during a hunting-related incident in Norman Township on Saturday.

According to a Michigan State Police news release issued on Monday morning, a 37-year-old man was hand cranking the drawstring on his crossbow when the crank device broke and struck him in the right eye on Saturday morning.

The man was transported to Munson Healthcare Manistee Hospital and then eventually to Munson Medical Center in Traverse City for surgery.

MSP reminded hunters that “it is important to be familiar with their hunting equipment … especially when handling bows, crossbows and firearms.”

“Although the preliminary investigation indicates a possible manufacturer defect, everyone should visually inspect their equipment for any potential issues or hazards,” reads part of the release.
