OPENING WEEKEND OF HUNTING SEASON ENDS DEADLY

Two hunters have lost their lives in North Idaho this weekend. One in what authorities are calling an accident and the other apparently involving natural causes.

Search and Rescue crews from Idaho and Washington found the body of Jurgen Thiede, 54, of Ione early Sunday morning. Investigators say he apparently died of natural causes while hunting near his son's residence outside off Worley, Idaho.

Authorities in Shoshone County say a hunting accident resulted in the death of another man Saturday evening. But investigators are not saying how Steven Seppala, 43, of Ponderay was killed.

With hunting season in full gear, authorities are reminding people to be prepared and take basic safety steps. Kootenai County Sheriff Rocky Watson says telling friends and family where you will be is always important. In fact, that helped Search and Rescue crews find the missing hunter nearly Worley Sunday morning.

Autopsies on both victims will be conducted this week, and authorities should have more answers into these deaths.
