CONCORD — Glenn Normandeau, executive director of the agency, said the hunting accident happened Friday morning north of Franklin. He said a Fish and Game stocking crew witnessed the shooting.

The victim suffered a non-life-threatening injury when he was hit in the side of the head by “a (shotgun) pellet or two,” Normandeau said. The shooter apparently was aware of the accident but left the scene, he said.

“They’re still putting birds out and people are blasting away,” he said. “It just needs to come to an end.”

Such incidents have happened in the past, he said, but this hunting season seems to be worse than usual.

Normandeau said this is not a new issue. He found a study dating back to 1949, “which illustrates that these same problems were going on back then.”
