DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) -- A Long Grove man was accidentally shot in
the head over the weekend while turkey hunting in eastern Iowa.
Forty-year-old Peter Kroeger was injured yesterday . He was
treated and released from a Dubuque hospital, but may undergo
surgery to remove pellets lodged near his eye.
A DNR official says Kroeger was mistakenly shot in the head,
chest and leg by his hunting partner, who was about 80 yards away.
