    They were not even hunting deer!!!!

    JASPER COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A Jones County woman was shot to death when her husband apparently mistook her for a deer while hunting.

    Authorities said the couple was squirrel hunting Saturday afternoon and became separated near Heidelberg in Jasper County. 

    The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks is investigating the case with assistance from the Jasper County's Sheriffs Office.

    Lot of big squirrels around there. That's why they use their deer rifles!

    Wow...I'm not even sure where to go with this one. I should say something sarcastic but a woman did get shot so I'll refrain.

    While small game hunting during deer season, lots of people have carried a couple slugs in their pockets over the years. Some even have a shotshell in the barrel for small game and two slugs in the tube --- jump a deer you shoot the birdshot over it's head (or try to find the slide release) and then you have 2 tries with the slug.


    By no means am I saying that's what happened.

    HEIDELBERG — State officials plan to reconstruct the scene of a weekend hunting accident in Jasper County that has claimed the life of a Jones County woman.

    State and local law enforcement officials reported Monday that they are continuing to investigate a weekend hunting accident that claimed the life of 66-year-old Elaine Hutto of Laurel.

    According to officials, Hutto was shot while she and her husband were on a hunting trip in Jasper County.

    James “Jim†Walker, spokesman for the Mississippi Wildlife and Fisheries Department, said the state agency is continuing to gather information concerning the incident.

    “We know that it happened on the afternoon of Nov. 6th (Saturday) between 3 and 5 p.m. in Jasper County near Heidelberg,†Walker said. “We know that a couple was reportedly hunting and they got separated. ... We know that the target was not identified and there was a discharge of a weapon.â€

    Officials said Hutto was pronounced dead at South Central Regional Medical Center in Laurel at 7:52 p.m. Saturday.

    “It’s a tragic incident. It’s very unfortunate, but we are investigating it,†Walker said. “Our guys are doing their jobs and trying to gather all the details.â€

    Walker said the agency’s preliminary report indicates that the couple was squirrel hunting when the incident occurred.

    Jasper County Sheriff Kenneth Cross referred all calls concerning the matter to the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Cross said the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department assisted the state department with its initial investigation.

    Graham said Hutto’s body has been transported to the Mississippi Crime Lab for an autopsy.

    “We have requested an autopsy, which is normal,†the coroner said Monday. “An autopsy is standard procedure in these type of cases.â€

    Walker said the department is continuing to investigate the incident and is planning to reconstruct the accident.

    “Part of the investigation is the reconstruction of the accident,†he said. “Hopefully, we will know more after we’ve done all of this.â€

    Memory Chapel Funeral Home of Laurel is in charge of funeral arrangements for Hutto, which were incomplete at press time.
