Gun-Deer Hunting Injuries

In Green County, around 3:30 Saturday afternoon, authorities responded to a report of a man hurt along County Highway X in the Attica area.

The DNR warden for Green County says a man in his late 30s accidentally shot himself in the upper leg with his own shotgun. He was taken by Med Flight to UW Hospital.

His condition is unknown. The incident is still under investigation.
