DNR Conservation Officer Michael Lott says 26-year-old Herald Hart Bennett was shot about 8:30 Saturday morning in the Fox’s Hollow area of Hampshire County.
The Charles Town man was hit in the right side with a rifle bullet fired by 61-year-old David Clarke Butler of Inwood.
The two men were hunting from the same hunting camp.
Lott says Butler was shooting at a turkey and missed, with the bullet hitting Bennett, who was walking on a roadway below.
The DNR says heavy brush, rain and fog contributed to the shooting. Charges are expected to be filed.
