The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says two incidents on the water had very different endings.
The agency says a father and teenage son were duck hunting in western Iowa’s Monona County on Sunday when their 14-foot boat started taking on water. They called for help and were rescued by a DNR conservation officer and a state trooper. Neither was hurt. Their names weren’t released.
On Friday, just to the south, a bowhunter from Nebraska was kayaking at the Nobles Lake Wildlife Management Area in Harrison County. Thirty-three-year-old Cody Bengford of Bellevue didn’t return home and was reported missing.
His capsized kayak was found Friday night, while his body was recovered by a dive team on Saturday.
