According to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, an Elizabeth man was injured Saturday morning when he stepped on an arrow while pheasant hunting in the Flatbrook-Roy Wildlife Management Area in Sussex County.

"Originally it was thought that the man had been shot with an arrow, but further investigation from Division Conservation Officers and examination of the medical report indicated that the hunter did indeed step on the arrow," said Division Bob McDowell.

Carlos Barros, 42, was taken to Newton Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released for injury to his right thigh.
