‘Stupid’ mistake costs hunter his thumb
CUMMING, Iowa (WTVR) – An Iowa hunter made a mistake that cost him his thumb. Ted Larsen, 69, told WHO-TV he double loaded his gun resulting in two powder loads and two bullets in the weapon.
“I should have checked it,” Larsen said. “That would have been prevented if I had just took a couple minutes to do that and I didn’t do that, see. It’s just my own stupidity.”
Larsen said he is telling his story so other hunters can learn from his mistake.
