Opening day of Michigan’s firearm season began just like usual for Patrick Mulligan.
He was sitting in his blind like he has done for the past few seasons. He heard gun shots nearby and a deer ran right in front of him. He dropped the deer with one shot. As he was recovering the deer, he was approached by two men. An altercation ensued where Patrick was beaten and the men took his deer.
Patrick suffered minor injuries and was pretty upset by the incident. He was just out there to have a good time with his family.
It’s supposed to be fun. I got to go out there with my grandpa, my dad, my uncle, it’s a family tradition. I’ve been out there since I was three years old, same camp, never moved. I shoot my buck every year and I have a blast! Why should anybody screw that up for anybody else?” Says Patrick.
If anyone has information about the incident they are encouraged to contact the Mason co. Sheriff’s department at (231) 843-3475
