This is where it was mentioned that the hunter possibly fired a shot into the air.
[Quote]Emergency workers were on the ground, searching for the hunter, and heard a gunshot, presumably a signal from the hunter. They followed the sound and found the hunter's vehicle. The helicopter then used a searchlight on the hunter, the report states. The aircraft was about 100 to 150 feet above the trees.[UNQUOTE]
