Fatal Hunting Accident on Lake Tawakoni

Hunter’s around the world understand the joy of taking our children on their first hunt.

On the morning of January 2nd, Corey Saunders and his 5yr old son Nathan pushed their boat from the shores of Lake Tawakoni. A father-son duck hunting trip was beginning for the father and his young hunting buddy. Not long after a storm blew through the area.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but authorities believe that the weather, the small size of the boat, and its load likely played a role. The families Labrador retriever was found on the shore barking and yapping, running in and out of the water.

Rescue teams began a search of the lake for the missing hunters. The Nathan’s body was found around 11:30 p.m. Monday night. He was not wearing a life jacket when he was found. The body of his father was found Tuesday.
