WEST UNION --- Two hunters were shot in the leg in separate incidents Saturday in Fayette County.

Timothy Lammers, 39, of Hazleton, was injured by a self-inflicted wound to his leg by a handgun Saturday morning. Lammers was with a group of hunters Saturday morning at a farm east of the Volga River State Recreation Area when he was showing a handgun to friends and the gun fired, according to a press release from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. He was taken to a hospital in West Union and then was transferred to Allen Memorial Hospital in Waterloo.

Jeff Koester, 43, of Eldorado, was injured when he and a group of four other hunters were dragging two deer and one of the people in the group slipped, resulting in a shotgun firing and hitting Koester in the upper thigh Saturday morning. He was also taken to a hospital in West Union and transferred to Allen Memorial Hospital in Waterloo. No information was available on patients' conditions.

Both incidents remain under investigation by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
