Hunter injured in accidental shooting

CARRINGTON, N.D. — A hunter was injured Saturday morning in an accidental shooting in southeast Foster County, Sheriff Michael Tufte reported. Tufte said a waterfowl hunter was accidentally hit in the lower abdomen after a deer hunter shot at a buck that was running toward the area where the waterfowl hunters were concealed.

The waterfowl hunters heard the shooting and were putting on blaze orange clothing to become more visible when one of them was hit, Tufte said. The hunter was taken to the hospital in Carrington and then transferred to Fargo, the sheriff said.

The accident remains under investigation. Tufte said it didn’t appear the injury was life-threatening.
