A 16-year-old Eveleth boy is recovering from a gunshot wound following a duck hunting accident early Saturday morning, Northland's News Center reports.
Authorities say Baker Felix was accidentally shot in the knee by his 18-year-old brother, Bryten Felix. The brothers and another man, 18, were reportedly standing up in a canoe when Bryten Felix fell backwards, accidentally discharging his shotgun into Baker Felix's knee.
Waterfowl hunting season opened Saturday morning in Minnesota. About 80,000 were expected to turn out for this year's opener.
