Hunting incident on Lake Maxinkuckee

October 16, 2011

10/17/11 Indiana conservation officers are investigating a hunting incident that happened at approximately 9:43 am on October 16, 2011.  The incident involved a Jason Steiner 34 years old of Knox Indiana.  He and two other men were waterfowl hunting on the lake when Steiner’s muzzle bead became entangled in the camo netting that created their boat blind.  When Steiner attempted to untangle the muzzle of his firearm, his left hand was in front of the muzzle.  When Steiner pulled the gun from the receiver end of the firearm it fired a shot into his left finger which caused a partial amputation of his left index finger.  Steiner was transported to St Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth Indiana.  Steiner was in good condition at the time of his arrival.  Other units on the scene were Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and Culver EMS.
