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.
