ST. AUGUSTA – A 50-year-old St. Augusta man has been hurt in a hunting accident.

The Stearns County Sheriff’s Department says Daniel Nelson was hunting on his property near County Road 136.

He was about 12 feet above the ground in his deer stand when he lost his balance after firing at a deer.  A rotted portion of the tree gave way, causing Nelson to fall to the ground.

He was taken to St. Cloud Hospital and is listed in fair condition.
