STEWARTVILLE -- A Stewartville man was in fair condition Monday at Saint Marys Hospital after he was accidentally shot while deer hunting Sunday afternoon.

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office said Charles Paulson, 46, was shot while hunting with a party of six in the 9800 block of 80th Street Southwest in Rock Dell Township.

The department said he was taking part in a drive through an area, and his 13-year-old nephew was posted at the end to shoot any deer the others pushed toward him. When a deer came out, the boy shot and missed the deer, but hit his uncle in the upper-right thigh.
