Third Hunting Accident In Texoma

There has been a third hunting accident in Texoma.

Game Warden Matt Thompson confirmed a hunter was shot Friday morning along the Pease River in Hardeman County. Thompson says the hunter was shot with a hunting rifle and that he was mistaken for game.

Another hunting accident happened in Stephens County, Oklahoma. Officials say a son shot and killed his dad.

Investigators say it appears the father leaned a loaded rifle against a tree and his son picked it up. Officials say when the father went to take the rifle away from the son, it went off, instantly killing the father.

This hunting accident happened just days after a deadly hunting accident in Montague County. A man died after falling from a deer stand in Nocona.
