A Pompton Lakes man was taken to the hospital after he was shot in the face during a turkey hunting accident in West Milford this morning, police said.

Keith Snowden, 31, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital to be treated, said police Lt. Peter Van Gilst.

The incident in a wooded area off Van Orden Road was reported shortly before 7 a.m., he said.

When police arrived, they found Snowden had been struck in the face by several pellets from a shotgun fired by Donald Einreinhofer, 40, of Stockholm, the lieutenant said.

Einreinhofer was with Snowden at the scene, but the two were not hunting together, said Gilst. They were both hunting for turkey.

No criminal charges are pending against Einreinhofer because police believe the incident to be an accident.

The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife are also investigating the shooting.

Therapist's Specialty: Counseling For Road Rage
By Amy Westfeldt

The AP

So you're driving 10 mph over the speed limit but you slow down when a tailgater starts honking. Very passive-aggressive.

Or, you speed up when someone tries to pass you. Classic competitive behavior.

Or you scream and pound your steering wheel when construction limits traffic to one lane. Narcissistic personality.

Donald Einreinhofer has been diagnosing the personality types behind raging drivers' worst habits for a year, listening - for $70 an hour - as motorists vent their frustrations.

The 31-year-old high-school teacher - a certified hypnotherapist but not trained as a psychologist - began advertising road-rage counseling after he couldn't find anyone to help with his own traffic-related problems.

"It's kind of made me a one-man specialty," said Einreinhofer, who offers hourly sessions out of his home in rural Stockholm, N.J.

Einreinhofer says passive-aggressive motorists don't start out antagonizing other drivers but won't tolerate anyone else they feel is a dangerous driver.

"There's a lot of people who come in with a real law-and-order mentality," Einreinhofer said. "Somehow they feel a compulsion to punish that person."

Einreinhofer says he used to be a passive aggressor, and his pet peeve was tailgating. Now, he uses hypnosis and muscle-relaxation exercises to calm down. He focuses on the good drivers on the road and pulls an imaginary shade over his rear window so he can't see the tailgaters.

Carol Rodriguez, director of the Institute of Stress Medicine in Norwalk, Conn., offers some other advice: Treat other drivers as if they were guests in your home. Focus on the interior of the car, not the exterior. Listen to soft music.

You said it Dubs. How do you mistake a human for a turkey, or any game animal for that matter?

Since he was not charged id assume he was totally unaware of the other hunter.
Could happen especially on Public land.

I hope he never hunts another day in his life and the victim recovers. How does this happen? Did he attempt to shoot the guys decoy maybe?[wallmad]

My buddy was shot 3 years ago. Had 150+ pellets in the arm and leg. He was shot at 9 yards. That guy got his lic. back after two years. Also turkey hunting.

He just got done gobbling when he was shot. The only thing we could figure, he was sneaking up on him calling and when he gobbled this guy saw movement and shot.
