Man Shoots His Own Leg While Hunting In Iowa

VINTON, Iowa (AP) ― A 34-year-old Iowa man shot himself in the leg while deer hunting in Marion County.

Iowa Department of Natural Resources spokesman Kevin Baskins says Daniel Higdon was re-holstering a handgun Saturday when the pistol discharged and hit him in the lower leg.

The Vinton man was taken by ambulance to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines.

Baskins says the bullet passed through Higdon's calf and the injuries were not life threatening.
