Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating after a Borden man was fatally injured while deer hunting yesterday evening.  The victim, Thomas Zimmerman (58), of Borden, was hunting on private property in southern Harrison County near Elizabeth when the incident occurred.   

At approximately 6:40 p.m., Indiana Conservation Officers were notified, along with other responders, after Zimmerman was located unresponsive by other members of his hunting group.  Zimmerman was hunting from an elevated ladder type tree stand.  Because of his position in the stand, Indiana Conservation Officers and the other responders had to utilize a rope and pulley system to lower Zimmerman to the ground.

Zimmerman died due to a close range gunshot wound to the head.  No foul play is suspected.  The investigation is ongoing pending findings on toxicology and other tests.

Assisting agencies included the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, Harrison County EMS, Harrison County Coroner, and Boone Township Volunteer Fire Department.

Indiana Conservation Officers urge everyone hunting from an elevated stand to always use a safety life-line while hunting, check their equipment before each use, and provide a hunt plan and location to someone in case of emergencies.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) today welcomed the nomination of Scott County Sheriff Dan McClain to serve as the U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Indiana. President Donald Trump announced the nomination today.

“Sheriff McClain has helped guide Scott County through some of southern Indiana’s most trying times,” Senator Young said. “His honorable service in the Navy and his experience navigating the opioid crisis – the chief law enforcement challenge of our time – has prepared him for this role as U.S. Marshal.”

“Sheriff McClain has dedicated much of his career to serving our country and state in the Armed Forces, including as a Navy SEAL, and as sheriff of Scott County, which has been hard-hit by the opioid crisis,” Senator Donnelly said. “I look forward to learning more about his experience.”

Mr. McClain served in the U.S. Navy from 1982 to 1995, during which time he served on SEAL Teams Four and Six, and later as a SEAL Instructor at the Naval Special Warfare Center.  Following his service in the Navy, he went on to provide security consulting services from 2004 to 2009 in support of the U.S. Department of Defense and Department of State during Operation Iraqi Freedom, and the Center for Anti-Terrorism and Naval Security Forces in Jacksonville, Florida. He was elected Sheriff of Scott County in 2011.
