Taylor and several friends from Minnesota were hunting waterfowl in a field using blinds when they heard rifle shots and saw some deer running towards them. They tried to get the attention of the deer hunters when a stray bullet struck Taylor in the lower right abdomen.

Taylor was transported to the Carrington Health Center where he was checked out and then transferred by air ambulance to a Fargo hospital.

This occurred near the southeast corner of Foster County.

A hunter remains in a Fargo hospital after being shot by another hunter last weekend.

It happened Saturday morning in Foster County.

The Foster County Sheriff says a deer hunter shot at a buck that was running toward where a group of waterfowl hunters were sitting in a blind. The bullet hit one of the waterfowl hunters in the stomach.  

The hunter who got shot was taken to the hospital in Carrington and then transferred to Fargo.

Sheriff Mike Tufte says he recommends waterfowl hunters stop hunting until deer season is over. 

The sheriff says the men in the hunting blind tried to put on their orange vests when they heard shots being fired toward them, but it was too late. One of the men was hit.
