Man Shoots Finger Off While Hunting In Michigan

FERRY TWP. (WWJ/AP) – Authorities say a west Michigan man accidentally shot off his index finger during a hunting incident.

Oceana County Sheriff officials say the man was unloading his .50 caliber muzzle loader while hunting on private property in Oceana County’s Ferry Township about 10 a.m. Saturday when he unintentionally discharged the weapon. Authorities say the man’s left hand was near the muzzle.

Lt. Craig Mast told MLive.com the man’s left index finger was shot off the hand. He was treated at a local hospital.

Mast said the man, whose identity was not released, was cited for not having a valid hunting license.

No further details were given.
