Teen shot in neck while hunting


CONESVILLE (KWWL) -- The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says a 17-year-old is recovering, after being hit with shotgun pellets while duck hunting.

Nicholas Wilson of Muscatine was hunting early Saturday at Cone Marsh in Columbus Junction, when he was hit in the lip and neck.

He was taken to a Muscatine hospital, where he was treated and released.

Authorities say it appears that Wilson was hit when hunters in another group were shooting at flying ducks.

It's not yet known who fired the shot that hit Wilson.
