SCHODACK -- After a three-hour search, rescuers located an injured bow hunter Sunday night. He is now recuperating from a head laceration.

Police got a cellphone call that William H. McDonald had fallen in the woods off rural Van Hoesen Road in South Schodack and had a large laceration to his head. The caller was a fellow hunter who was tending to McDonald's wound but police had difficulty locating the pair in the dark, according to the Schodack Police Department.

McDonald was found at 9:47 p.m. and evacuated in a helicopter that landed in a nearby cornfield. He was rushed to Albany Medical Center Hospital, police said.

McDonald's condition on Monday was not available.
