The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says a Harlan man died in a deer hunting accident Tuesday evening in Monona County.

The D.N.R. says 21-year-old Corey Custer was bow hunting southeast of Onawa. He was coming out of his tree stand at approximately 7 p.m. when he fell approximately 18-23 feet to the ground.

Custer suffered head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
