A deer hunter who tried to climb a tree with a loaded rifle accidentally shot himself in the buttocks, police said.

Max Bowers Jr. was hunting in Noble County, northwest of Fort Wayne, when he attempted to climb a tree Sunday with a muzzle-loading rifle slung over his shoulder, conservation officer Rodney D. Clear said.

The gun slipped off Bower's shoulder and fell to the ground, causing it to fire. The bullet struck Bowers in the rear, Clear said.

Bowers, 56, was treated and released from Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne.
