Start Date: 11/13/2018
Event Description:

Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a hunting accident that seriously injured a hunter and slightly injured a second.


At approximately 9 a.m. Saturday morning, Officers were contacted about a waterfowl hunter that was shot while in the field near Aurora, IN.


Adam Daugherty, 30, Lawrenceburg, sustained a gunshot injury to his left ankle while waterfowl hunting.


Jeremy Legge, 37, Petersburg, KY sustained a gunshot injury to his right ankle.


Adam and Jeremy had concluded their hunt with two others and were standing outside the hunting blind when the firearm involved discharged injuring both of them.


Adam’s firearm had been propped vertical inside the hunting blind when a dog reentered the blind, knocked the firearm over, causing the firearm to fall over and discharge.


Adam was taken to HighPoint Health to receive medical treatment. He was later transported to University of Cincinnati for further treatment.


Jeremy transported himself to a doctor for medical treatment.


The firearm involved was a 12 gauge Browning Maxus that did not have the safety engaged.
