Deer hunter killed by member of own hunting party

SPOONER, Wis. Law enforcement investigators say a deer hunter who was fatally shot Saturday in Burnett County was killed by a member of his own hunting party.

Sixty-six-year-old Dale McDowell of Danbury was shot in a state forest in the Town of Webb Lake.

Safety specialist for the D-N-R's Northern Region Chris Wunrow says the shooter and the victim's family have been notified of the investigation's results.

The investigation was conducted by a team that included the D-N-R, the Burnett County Sheriff's Department and the Wisconsin State Patrol.

A spokeswoman for the Burnett County district attorney says her office will wait to receive the final reports before deciding whether to file charges.
