A man in Iowa is currently in hospital recovering from an injury he sustained after a tree he was using for target practice fired back at him.

According to initial reports, 27-year-old Logan Bunn was shooting at tree outside his home near Lansing when one of the bullets ricocheted, striking him in an unspecified body part.

Bunn arrived at a La Crosse hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, prompting staffers to notify local police.

Authorities in Allamakee County are still investigating the bizarre incident which occurred early Sunday morning, but say no foul play is suspected.

No word on whether alcohol was a factor.
