Bird-hunting son's shot hits father in Dummer
David Osgood, 55, of Berlin, was hit by seven shotgun pellets on his right side after his son, Cory Osgood, 24, of Nothignham, fired at a woodcock in what authorities describe as an overgrown orchard off of Hill Road in Dummer.
Osgood drove himself to Androscoggin Valley Hospital where he was treated and released.
Father and son were questioned by state Fish and Game officials, who continue their investigation into the shooting.
Officials said both men were wearing hunter orange, but could not see each other when the shot was fired.
