A man who was shot accidentally while hunting in Central Texas was taken to a Fort Worth hospital, authorities said Monday.

HILL COUNTY (October 17, 2011)--A Fort Worth man was taken to a hospital Sunday after he shot himself in the hand while hunting in Central Texas.

Hill County Sheriff Jeffrey Lyon said the man was bow hunting near Aquilla Lake Sunday evening when he accidentally shot himself in the hand with a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol he was carrying in his pocket.

Two other men who were hunting with the injured man said they heard a single gunshot and then heard their friend yelling that he had shot himself.

Lyon said the two friends took the injured man to a gas station in Hillsboro where they called 911.

The wounded man was taken to a Fort Worth hospital for treatment.
