BEND, Ore. (AP) - One duck hunter accidentally shot another in the leg as the men from Bend climbed over a downed tree while returning to their car Sunday along the Deschutes River near Sunriver.

The Deschutes County sheriff’s office says 22-year-old Jesse Derrick shot 21-year-old Colton Nye in the back of his leg at close range with a 12-gauge shotgun.
