You heard of ice-fishing? Now there’s ice-hunting.

A hunter was injured recently after accidentally shooting himself in the chest when he used the butt of his rifle to test how thick an icy surface was.

Massachusetts Environmental Police said the hunter hit the butt of his muzzleloader rifle to check the ice.

The gun discharged, hitting him in the chest.

According to the story, bystanders competently administered first aid. The hunter and his quarry are both singly in treatment together.
