A 20-year-old Indianola man is injured in Nebraska’s third hunting accident in the last three days.

According to Nebraska Game and Parks, the man was seriously injured while hunting around 5 p.m. Sunday in Red Willow County.

The man was allegedly shot accidentally by the rifle belonging to a 54-year-old man who was following him and another hunter up a hill.

The injured man was airlifted to Bryan West Medical Trauma Center in Lincoln for treatment.

Nebraska Game and Parks says this is the state’s third hunting accident since Friday and the fourth total in 2022.

Saturday, an Omaha man had injuries to his hands after he was accidentally shot. Friday, a Hickman man was accidentally shot in his arm.

The state saw eight hunting accidents in 2021 and five in 2020.
