St. Paul man injured in hunting accident near OrrORR, Minn. – A St. Paul man has been injured in a hunting accident north of Orr in northeastern Minnesota.
The St. Louis County sheriff’s office says 48-year-old Daniel Paul Liska was hunting grouse with his brother, 49-year-old David Richard Liska, of Forest Lake, near Elephant Lake on Saturday morning.
The Mesabi Daily News of Virginia reports the two brothers were separated by 25 to 30 yards, when a grouse was flushed and David Liska shot at it. He did not see his brother. Pellets hit Daniel Liska in the face and hand. David Liska took his brother to the Cook Hospital, where he was treated and released.
The sheriff’s office is reminding hunters to be aware of their surroundings and where all other members of their hunting party are prior to firing.
