A hunting accident near Seneca has left a man hospitalized with a foot injury. 

Conservation Police say 40 year old David Fessler of Seneca was shot in the foot when a 14 year old boy’s 20 gauge shotgun accidently fired Saturday afternoon.  Police believe the gun became caught in the boy’s zipper.  It was loaded with bird shot.

Fessler was taken to Morris Hospital before being transferred to a hospital in Chicago.  His injuries weren’t considered lift threatening.
