received "superficial" wounds to the neck, knee and thigh.His
brother was more-seriously injured, with blood gushing from his
neck after a pellet entered him between the thyroid gland and the windpipe.Al
dialed 9-1-1 but because of the remoteness of the location, the police and ambulance couldn't find them.They had to walk out to the rig.
According to Al
, many leaves were still on the trees and the bush was opaque, so the other hunter couldn't see them as he
prepared to shoot at a pheasant on the ground.
