MARSHALL COUNTY, Okla. (KTEN) — A man who shot himself in the leg with a crossbow is now under investigation for hunting violations.

Marshall County deputies were dispatched to Whiskey Creek Road around 9 a.m. Wednesday after receiving a call for help from the wounded hunter.

Game warden Trey Hale said the man was airlifted to a Texas hospital for treatment of injuries to his calf and foot. 

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office said an investigation with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation later determined that the hunter had been trespassing while attempting to hunt without a license or deer tag.

The name of the wounded man was not released pending further investigation.
