Packing bowhunter shoots self; may be charged

POOLESVILLE, Md. (AP) — Maryland Natural Resources Police say a bow hunter who accidentally shot himself could face charges.

That’s because the hunter shot himself with a handgun he was carrying and not a bow. Sgt. Brian Albert says carrying a gun during bow hunting season is illegal for hunters.

Montgomery County Police say the unidentified 45-year-old man called for help around 12:20 p.m. Tuesday.  Police say he was found about 1 p.m. in Poolesville and flown to a hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
