W.Va. CSI hunting academy planned

Posted:

LOGAN, W.Va. (AP) -- Call it CSI wildlife.

A Hunting Incident Academy will bring 40 wildlife officers from 16 states to West Virginia next week to learn the finer points of investigating a hunting-related shooting.

Nine instructors from seven states will share their skills, knowledge and techniques on how they go about investigating a shooting incident involving a hunter. The instructors have more than 350 years of experience and have investigated more than 2,000 hunting-related shootings.

Organizers say one aim of the training is to reduce hunting accidents.

The training begins Sunday at Chief Logan State Park Lodge and runs through Sept. 20. It is sponsored by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources and the International Hunger Education Association.
