    Dog shoots man in leg

    My guess is the man was a Hawkeye fan ... and the dog a Cyclone fan!

    TAMA, Iowa A Tama man was injured when hunting dogs stepped on his gun.

    Officials with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources say 37-year-old James Harris was pheasant hunting with a group about three miles north of Grinnell when the accident happened.

    Officials say the group had shot a bird and when Harris went to retrieve it, he put his gun on the ground and crossed a fence. As he crossed the fence, hunting dogs stepped on his gun causing it to fire.

    Harris was shot in the lower left leg.

    He was treated at Grinnell Medical Center and later transferred by helicopter to University Hospitals in Iowa City.

    The investigation is continuing.

    This is why you UNLOAD your gun when crossing a fence.

    The investigation is continuing.
    If this was the NCAA, I wonder what the dog would be charged with?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    he dog would be banned from ever buying/having a hunting license, as he clearly went hunting with others that had a license, but he did NOT pay for one.

    Dumb dog.

    Because his owner was going to sell those pheasants for profit. Which obviously means the dog should be suspended.

    Doesn't his gun have a safety?

    I am sure it does, but a safety has to be ON to work.

    Dog could have tripped the safety when it stepped on the gun.

    Safety could have been off.

    In any case, if you follow safety rules taught to you when you are 12 years old, this doesn't happen.

    This gives new meaning to "hunting" dog.

    That would be a trick on most guns. I say that it wasn't on.

    Side note - why was HE crossing the fence if they had dogs? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Me thinks something else happened.....
