A Davenport man is recovering after being accidentally shot by his grandfather while hunting in northeast Iowa. It happened shortly after six A.M. Saturday north of Waukon in Allamakee county where four men were turkey hunting.
Forty-one-year old Shane Emmert was returning to their vehicles when his grandfather, 80-year-old George Emmert of Mason City mistook him for a turkey and shot him in the chest. Emmert was initially taken to the Waukon Hospital and then airlifted to a LaCrosse, Wisconsin hospital in serious condition. Emmert suffered a collapsed lung and internal bleeding.
