Iowa authorities say a shot fired by a fellow hunter has wounded a 37-year-old Pleasantville man.

The Iowa Natural Resources Department says the incident occurred Sunday morning south of Knoxville. The department says Joe Roff was struck by a shotgun slug fired at a moving deer by a member of Roff's hunting party.

Roff was taken to Knoxville Hospital and Clinics and later transferred to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines.

The department says that in another hunting accident, a 50-year-old man was injured Sunday morning when he fell from his tree stand. The department says Bryan Brown suffered a back injury after falling about 15 feet while deer hunting south of Marshalltown.
