LANSING, Iowa—

Iowa officials say a Lansing man has undergone surgery after being shot in the head while deer hunting in the northeast corner of Iowa.

An Iowa Department of Natural Resources news release says 36-year-old Michael Welch was hunting with 12 others Friday morning when the shooting occurred.

The release says Welch was making a deer drive when he was hit in the back of his head by a shotgun slug, sending him plummeting over a 25-foot hillside.

Welch was airlifted to a hospital in Lacrosse, Wis., where he underwent surgery.

The incident is still under investigation by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Allamakee County Sheriff's Department.
