WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is investigating four shootings involving deer hunters on opening day.
A 40-year-old Edgar man was shot in the chest near the shoulder around 9 a.m. Saturday in the Marathon County town of Wien.
Sheriff's Lt. Dale Wisnewski says the wound was not life threatening. The DNR says a deer drive was involved.
The Wood County Sheriff's Department says about two hours earlier a hunter attempting to shoot a deer shot another hunter near Arpin. The Wausau Daily Herald reports that hunter was in serious condition Saturday.
In Door County, a hunter was hit in the thigh and a hunter was grazed in Marquette County.
The DNR says near ideal conditions across the state contributed to an active morning.
