"He had surgery and is doing pretty well," he said. "He took between 100-120 pellets in about a 4-inch (10-centimeter) circle to his calf."
Harris was listed in good condition Tuesday, officials at University Hospitals in Iowa City said.
Harris was hunting with a group when he went to get a bird the group had shot. Harris put his gun on the ground and as he was crossing a fence, his hunting dog stepped on the gun, Foster said.
The gun was about 3 feet (0.91 meter) away from his leg.
"The muzzle velocity is so great that the pellets don't have a chance to spread out," he said.
No one else was hurt, and the dog was not injured.
Foster said no citations have been issued.
