GUTHRIE MAN SHOT FROM CLOSE RANGE
November 19, 2003
The first personal injury during the hunting season in
Guthrie county was reported Sunday morning, according to Conservation
officer George Hemmen.
Mark Dawson was hospitalized with an injury to his left
heel when a gun owned by Larry Edgington discharged into the foot of Dawson
while they were getting out of a vehicle to hunt.
Hemmen said Dawson had about 40 pellets in the wound and
was still in the hospital. He also said the pellets might have caused even
more damage from the three feet distance if they had not struck a milk
carton before going through Dawson's boot.
Hunting accidents in Iowa have been on the increase since
the pheasant season opened, Hemmen said.
He attributed the increase to more pheasants in Iowa, more
hunters and the good weather that saw more hunters taking to the fields.
