A woman is shot in both of her legs by her boyfriend in a bizarre hunting accident. Police say he was trying to shoot a hog.
52 year-old Lisa Simmons of Brandon was shot Saturday night in western Flagler County. She's in serious condition at Halifax Medical Center after undergoing surgery.
Police say 52 year-old Steve Egan thought he was shooting at a hog outside the couple's tent. Police say Egan thought he hit the animal but was unable to locate it when he left the tent.
When he heard a noise in the woods, Egan shot at what he thought was the hog.
Instead, Simmons was struck with the .30 caliber rifle bullet, traveling through both of her upper legs.

Florida, I’m relieved, when I read Brandon I thought it was Mississippi.
And she told her boyfriend, “Oh, no worries... next week, we’re going out boating on the bay, I’m bringing my 12-gauge and it’ll be my turn to mistake you for a mallard.”
Wouldn't apply anyway. Aardvarks aren't in season.
This is my girlfriend and that is my hog.
No, no - Wait a minute...
THAT is my girlfriend and THIS is my hog.
No, no - Wait a minute...
THIS is my hog and THAT is my girlfriend.
No! No! Wait! Wait! I've got it now!
This one is really my girlfriend - really.
Just ask her.....
How awful on several levels. Sleeping in a tent in the woods, needs to take a pee and gets shot, that’s awful. Then to make matters worse you become a laughing stock because your stupid boyfriend tells the reporter he though you were a hog.
She should have shaved those legs.
Note to hog hunter: Use dogs to hunt hogs, not wifes. I think it’s illegal to bait them anyway.
The guy needs glasses or better looking girlfriend or both!
I was thinking the same....(great minds think alike!!)
I think it would be more like “You may be a redneck if you ever mistook your girlfriend for a hog”.
I am unable to make a judgement without pictures.
I’m tempted to joke about it but when I think of the wound itself... .30 caliber bullet through both upper legs... wow... poor woman.
Sowing the seeds a a great marriage, never mind.
My guess: Mr. Steve Egan was higher than a space shuttle - probably on a combination of booze and meth - when he started shooting.
“Does this make my butt look big?”
In order to preserve my aging eyes, I must abstain.
In further developments she shot him back, and was quoted as saying, “sorry, for awhile there I mistook him for a man!”
I don't care who you are...that's funny.
Bill Clinton was out jogging with his government financed security detail when he came upon a DC streetwalker. As you would expect, he stopped to proposition her. Even using his status as POTUS, he was unable to get her price down to $20, so they did not ‘get together’.
Later that evening, Bill was escorting Hillary to an exclusive formal event and chanced upon the same streetwalker. She gave Hillary a quick look-over and quipped, “See what you get for $20?”
Do ‘hog hunters’ shoot at their prey from inside their own tent?
Seems like it would be an ‘expensive’ sport. Tents don’t come cheap.
