Audubon Man Injured While Deer Hunting

December 10, 2007--A western Iowa man got minor injuries over the weekend while deer hunting in Guthrie County.

42-year-old Todd Lawshe of Audubon was hunting Saturday near Elk Grove when he was hit by a deer slug fired by another hunter. That's according to Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

DNR officials say the other hunter was shooting over the crest of a hill at a wounded deer on one side of a county road and wasn't aware of Lawshe and others hunting.

Lawshe was treated at a clinic for a two-inch abrasion and bruise on his chest.

Officials say they continue to investigate.
