[One can hardly keep up with all the carnage.]

A 48-year-old Omaha man was fatally wounded in a weekend hunting accident, according to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

The agency didn’t release the man’s name Monday.

The incident happened Sunday on the Omaha Indian Reservation in northeast Nebraska, near Macy. The man was among five hunters taking part in an early deer hunting season when he was shot in the buttocks with a rifle, said Jerry Kane, a spokesman for Game and Parks.

The victim was taken to the hospital in Winnebago, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities ordered an autopsy.

The Game and Parks Commission, Nebraska State Patrol, Omaha Tribe officers and the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office were investigating the shooting death.

  1. Sucks to be him! Karma is a bitch. I bet the cops think it was ‘friendly fire’ to order an autopsy? For sure the deer didn’t do it!

  2. People aren’t usually fatally wounded when they’re shot in the butt…. Oh, it was a hunter, you say? Well, that explains it. He had his head up his ass.
