Benjamin Parker, 35, had just finished hunting four miles northeast of Braddyville in Page County when his gun became entangled in some bags he was carrying and discharged a deer slug into his right foot. He was taken to Clarinda Regional Health Center then transferred to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines where he was being treated for a non-life threatening injury.
