14-year-old Minnesota boy recovering after he was shot in the face while hunting. Jana Shortal reports.
(KARE) Russell Macdonald is no stranger to hunting, nor is his son Kaelan, but what happened to them last month while out pheasant shooting has changed that sport for them forever.
Russell said he wasn't clear to his son and two others about what path they were to be taking on the hunt.
When Russell and his friend went ahead and his friend fired his shotgun at a pheasant, the pellets scattered, two of them hitting 14-year-old Kaelan.
"Something hit me full bore right in the face and I went down, Kaelan recalled about the incident that happened three weeks ago.
Kaelan was hit in the cheek and one pellet somehow went into his eye socket.
