A Winona man is recovering after he was shot in the leg in a hunting accident Thursday afternoon, the Winona County Sheriff’s Department reported.

Daniel Glen Steinke, 20, was hunting for squirrels with another man on state land just west of Hidden Valley Mobile Home Park when they leaned their guns against the back of a Chevrolet Blazer, Chief Deputy Ron Ganrude said.

A .22-caliber rifle fell over and discharged when it hit the ground, Ganrude said. Steinke told police the bullet ricocheted off a fist-sized rock and struck him in the right leg just above the knee.

His friend drove him to Community Memorial Hospital for treatment, Ganrude said. The injury is not life-threatening.
