BIWABIK, Minn. -- Authorities were investigating on Monday an apparent deer-hunting accident that sent a man to the hospital in northeastern Minnesota.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said the 62-year-old man from rural Aurora, Minn., was shot during the weekend deer opener about 1 1/2 miles east of Biwabik, which is on the Iron Range.

The man apparently was shot by another member of his hunting party. He was taken to the Virginia Regional Medical Center, then flown to a hospital in Duluth.

The hunter's name and condition were not been released.

Authorities said the shooting appears accidental.
