Posted: Updated:

DUMMER, N.H. (AP) - Conservation officials say a New Hampshire man has been treated and released after being accidentally shot by his son while bird hunting.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says 55-year-old David Osgood of Berlin was hit on his right side by bird shot when his son, 24-year-old Cory Osgood of Nottingham, fired his shotgun at a woodcock. The accident took place Saturday in an apple orchard in Dummer.

Officials say the father drove himself to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin, where he was treated for seven puncture wounds and released.

Authorities say both hunters were wearing orange but couldn't see each other at the time of the shooting.
