Two deer hunters have been charged with failure to obtain a hunting license and several other charges after they were involved in an accident.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says 21-year-old Robert McCauley and 27-year-old Derrick Johnson were practice shooting with bows near Guthrie Center on Nov. 10 when they saw deer crossing a nearby road.

They were chasing the deer when McCauley tripped. His head struck his bow, cutting him above the left eye. Johnson ran into McCauley, pushing an arrow about nine inches into his back.

McCauley was hospitalized overnight but later released.

Both men were charged Tuesday. Other charges include failure to pay a habitat fee and failure to obtain a deer tag.

The charges have not yet been posted on Iowa online court records.
