Just got off the phone with Jerry. He got hit bad, thinks the shooter was 15-20 yards away, the shot bowled him over. All this while he was walking a mowed path and not wearing any turkey colors.
Of course there is an active investigation and the rest of the info is private at this point. I expect to continue hunting with Jerry maybe even this week. He is one tough hombre and has never quit a hunt early or missed one. His first WI season starts tomorrow.
BTW, for what it's worth, this happened on private land not public.
Thanks for posting this Dewey. I did not know about this until your post. This post made it possible for me to call him right away. Thanks again.
