      Hunter shot in Monroe County, incident under investigation


      Iowa officials are trying to determine how a Mississippi man was shot and wounded by a fellow deer hunter.


      The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says Clint Morgan, 48, of Saucier, Mississippi, was wounded around noon Sunday.





      Saucier was struck in the elbow by a slug fired by another member of his seven-member hunting party.


      Saucier was taken to a Des Moines hospital for treatment.


      The incident happened in Monroe County, southwest of Blakesburg.


      Officials say fog was not a factor in this case. That's different than an earlier hunting accident near Indianola where 58-year-old Miles Sagen was wounded by a fellow hunter.


      Both hunting incidents remain under investigation.
