Carter was preparing to go turkey hunting when he fell in his home. It added that he is now 'recovering comfortably' after undergoing surgery at the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia. His wife Rosalynn is with him .

'President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit,' the statement reads. 'He hopes the State of Georgia will allow him to rollover the unused limit to next year.'

The 94-year-old has had success with hunting – The Atlanta Journal-Constitutionreported last month that Carter had 'bagged a large wild turkey' on a recent trip.

The former president was in office from 1977 to 1981. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015. He announced several months later that a brain scan showed the cancer was gone following treatment.
