Severance — A hunter was accidently shot in the hip by another hunter in a corn field near Severance Friday afternoon. The wounded man was airlifted to North Colorado Medical Center and was conscious, according to Weld County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Margie Martinez.

The Weld County Sheriff’s Office responded to the shooting just after 4 p.m.
at Weld County roads 27 and 74, west of Woods Lake.

The two were hunting geese in the field when a shotgun got hooked on a blind and was dislodged from the man’s hand and discharged as it hit the ground, Martinez said.

Martinez said it did not appear that the wound was life threatening.
