A Willard man has been released from a Toledo hospital after being injured in a hunting mishap Tuesday morning in Greenfield Township.

Floyd Hicks, 41, of 1835 Thomas Road, had been listed in critical condition in the intensive care unit of St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center. However, Hicks had been discharged as of this morning, hospital spokeswoman Jana Zervos said.

"It was reported the gun blew up," Capt. Jamey Bracken of the Huron County Sheriff's Office said about the incident, which occurred between 10:30 and 11 a.m. near Hansville Corners Road in rural Monroeville.

Hicks first was taken to Mercy Hospital of Willard, then flown by helicopter to St. Vincent.

A Mercy Hospital emergency room employee called deputies, a requirement when shooting victims are treated. Deputies then notified Jeff Collingwood of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the wildlife officer for the county.

"My investigation is still ongoing. I can't release any information," Collingwood said.

Collingwood referred further questions to wildlife investigative supervisor Paul Kurfis, who was unavailable for comment this morning.

Unbelieveable! I really can not believe the retardation explaination from sally swiss tool sybil WHATEVER! You are the dumbest, most ridicilous IMBECILE to ever come along! What is your major issue with acting so DUMB? You can't POSSIBLY be THAT stupid! Tell me it's an act. I can't believe someone could possibly THINK like you do and get through life. How is that?

thank god I am not as stupid as swiss, guzzler, sally, boniva, dorothy. Yes sally your head is that far up your butt once again and you used that line as swiss or T$Robinson before. Can any of you hunters out there hook swiss moron up with a deer suit complete with antlers and release her into the woods and chase her out onto the road in front of my car? Most sensible people know animal numbers have to be kept down or the will over populate and take over the city. Notice I said sensible that does not apply to swiss.

correction befo...

or THEY will over populate.....

Why is it hunting and killing animals is so popular in the US. I can understand maybe the need for food but for the so called fun of sport, well to me thats disgusting and playing around with firearms is a dangerous hobby as is proved by this case. The gentleman in question is certainly a lucky man

You DO know the Beatles, don't you? You ask why the U.S. has such a popular sport as hunting. Next time, before you 'put down our counrty', do a little research on the topic. Find out how 'Our Great Counrty' would be overrun with wild animals if it weren't for the hunters out there. Hunting IS a sport, much like 'soccer'. Do you remember Beckham? He's one of us now...

Dave Rimmer, Li...

What makes you think I am putting down the USA, far from it, I just do not see the need for killing animals in the name of sport. So you are killing animals for the good of the environment are you? we always get the same stock answer from the so called "sporting" hunters over here.
I am not a particular animal sentimentalist but killing for "so called sport" sorry mate we agree to disagree.
As for David Beckham and more particularly his wife, you are welcome to him and her. And as for beetles, I dont kill them either
Catch you L8ER

This must be a case of a medical miracle. How does a patient go from being listed in "critical condition" in the ICU on Tuesday morning to "dishcharged" from the hospital on Wednesday morning. Is that even humanly possible?

yep (Anonymous)

it really does sound like an episode of a bugs bunny cartoon... lolol and the irony of a hunter getting injured as he is trying to kill other innocent creatures doesn't escape me either.....i am glad that he will be ok, but i hope that he has had enough, and stays home to enjoy nature next year, instead of going out and killing it

Maybe he will h...

swiss steak family T$Robinson lol!!

sally boniva......

when the gun blew up, did the deer have his finger in the end of the gun ???? hahahahahahaha

BigD.... (Anonymous)

is not at all amused at your sarcasm to our dedicated hunters. this is a mans life we are talking about here. came to expect this from alot of you on here anymore, insensitive idiots i guess......ooooh by the way sally? where has your finger been lately? i have a good idea where you can put it. i hope the hunters kill every animal in the county....lol.....then you can find something new to rant about.

Legalize Shemp ...

Sorry BigD, swiss boniva has ridden the short bus her whole life. She even asked if the deer had his 'finger' in the barrel of the gun. She thinks the deer has fingers. If the deer did have fingers, I'm sure it would be sure to show her it's middle one.

Hi, I'm a stray doe on my way to Lorain, Monoreville or Avery for some cheap gas, and I was wondering what happened to the nice cat lady with the gravy spigot. Some man is living there now and I need some grub. Since swiss family feels sooooo sorry for me, being an innocent 'creature' and all, perhaps I could bunk at your home for a few months. We could enjoy all that 'nature' together...if you know what I'm SAYin'...

sally boniva......

i love it that you put in descriptive words like calling him a "dedicated" hunter!!! lololol like that gives him credibility !!!! i will bet that he is dedicated... dedicated to going out and killing unarmed creatures in the woods..only after he stops at the drive thru to get some beer to keep him warm and toasty though.. oh, i'm sorry, that's what the shots of whiskey are for... hahahahaha

deer sally boniva, hi i'm a stray buck from West Monroeville looking for a good time. since you get all wrapped up into feeling sorry for me, next time you're driving, I'll jump out in front of your car. we can exchange insurance information, or i might run off after getting a look at you. paul says you're a'ight, he been tappin that for a long time you know what i'm SAYin'??

deer guzzler (A...

oh, sally...you are such a bonehead. lololol stuck on stupid.

bigd says.........

sally is an idiot. lets see sally, people who enjoy working, hunting, fishing, or just being plain stupid usually DEDICATE themselves to whatever it is that they do. you seem to have the dedication to stupid down to an art here. guzzler is right about you. get a life and get off here and go outside and face the world, face reality. the reality is that if there werent hunters such as myself and thousands of others we would be over run by these `harmless creatures` as you say!!! how would you like to step out and have a 12 point buck run his antlers right up your a** as your trying to tell me or another hunter that they are harmless creatures.....they cause thousands upon thousands of dollars each year to property, crops, and the vehicles which they so love to jump in front of......hey sally, got an idea.....why dont you put on a reindeer suit and go to the woods.....lol

can I get a hell yeah?!? nicely said. sally would ride a deer if she thought she could get better gas mileage out of him...

HELL YEAH!!!!!!

see, she's down at the elks tonight, with a little 'doe', blowing a few 'bucks'...ride sally, ride.

sally boniva......

the reason that the deer run in front of your cars, is because they are being chased through where they live by people who are shooting at them, you see, deers are animals, they don't realize that there is a season for killing them, so they feel scared and threatend when they know that humans are around, so they do what any creature would do in that situation, they try to get out of harms way.. by running!!!!maybe if we quit trying to kill them, they wouldn't panic and run in front of our cars?????

daughter (Anonymous)

btw while ur busy ranting on and on about him,u should at least know he got the deer,
So yes he is a dedicated deer hunter

hmmmmm (Anonymous)

if chickens have fingers why not deer???

deer guzzler (A...

sally swiss family boniva sybil, is it an act, or are you really that mentally unstable? do you REALLY think hunters chase deer through the woods, and drive them out so they run into your car??? Deer run into cars because they are STUPID, and your mentality isn't far off from theirs! Hunters sit and wait quietly, they don't chase deer! OMG! Are you really as stupid as a deer? Maybe if we didn't try killing them they won't run into our cars? Ever have one come through your windsheild and KICK YOU WITHIN ONE INCH OF YOUR LIFE? No, I thought not. Just shut your mouth and only give an opininon on here if it counts and you have something intelligent to say. I think we're all a little tired of your stupidity. You're an idiot, cut and dry.
