A Winona man is recovering after he was shot in the leg in a hunting
accident Thursday afternoon, the Winona County Sheriff’s Department
Daniel Glen Steinke, 20, was hunting for squirrels with another man
on state land just west of Hidden Valley Mobile Home Park when they
leaned their guns against the back of a Chevrolet Blazer, Chief Deputy
Ron Ganrude said.
A .22-caliber rifle fell over and discharged when it hit the ground,
Ganrude said. Steinke told police the bullet ricocheted off a fist-sized
rock and struck him in the right leg just above the knee.
His friend drove him to Community Memorial Hospital for treatment,
Ganrude said. The injury is not life-threatening.
