Man wounded in hunting accident

BELLE PLAINE, Iowa

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is reporting that a Michigan man has been injured in a hunting accident in Tama County.

According to authorities, Adam Post of Howell, Mich. on Wednesday was taken to Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids after being struck with shotgun pellets in the face and chest. The shot was fired by 56-year-old Leas Hill of Salem, Va.

The accident occurred near Belle Plaine.

Investigators say the two had taken a break from hunting for lunch when Hill closed the action on a double-barrel shotgun. The shotgun fired, with pellets striking a nearby truck and ricocheting to strike the 33-year-old Post.

Conservation Officer Brett Reece says the accident is a reminder to hunters to always make sure their firearm in pointed in a safe direction at all times.
