In Georgia and other States, teens engage in hunting activities. During most hunting trips or activities, there are no problems or injuries. Unfortunately, at times, an errant shot is fired and results in a serious personal injury and, in some cases, death to a hunter or bystander. A hunting accident was reported in Fulton County, Florida. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that a teen was accidentally shot when his gun discharged while he was hunting squirrels with his brother. The teenagers were hunting with .22-caliber rifles. The gun went off when the gun hit the ground and then hit the teen in the face/cheek. It appears that the teen will recover from these hunting related injuries. See Teen Shot While Hunting with Brother in Fulton County, Florida.
