Two men injured in separate hunting-relating incidents in Allegany County

On the opening day on the shotgun deer hunting season in Allegany County on Saturday, one man was shot by his uncle while another man was wounded while cleaning a deer. State police based in Amity said both incidents took place in the northern part of the county.
In Granger, a 34-year old Silver Springs man was shot in the arm when his uncle's gun accidentally discharged. The round went through a vehicle and struck the man on the other side. The victim was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester where he is expected to make a full recovery. The hunting party consisted of two brothers and their sons. Troopers will review the facts with the Allegany County District Attorney to determine if charges are warranted. 
Meanwhile, troopers also investigated when a hunter slashed his arm while cleaning a deer. Police said the wound was not serious.
