Grinnell Man Suffers Minor Injury While Pheasant Hunting Saturday
Posted: 10/28/2012
GRINNELL – A Grinnell man suffered minor injuries after being struck in the face by shotgun pellets while hunting pheasants Saturday in Poweshiek County.

Darrell Lamb, 78, received two pellet shots in the face when a pheasant flushed between him and three other members of his hunting party at the end of a food plot. Lamb and the others could not see one another because of the height of the food plot and the topography of the land.

Lamb was treated and released from Grinnell Regional Hospital. The incident occurred at approximately 11 a.m. Saturday.
