Fond du Lac man injured in hunting incident
Authorities continue to investigate an incident where a hunter was
shot this afternoon in Green Lake County.
A 47-year-old Fond du Lac man was shot in the foot and torso this
afternoon while hunting on the White River Marsh public hunting
grounds near Princeton, according to a press release issued by the
Green Lake County Sheriff’s Department.
Emergency responders received a report that the man had been shot
at 12:13 p.m. The preliminary investigation indicates the man was deer
hunting alone near the White River Marsh on Country Trunk D. He was
sitting in a tree stand when his gun discharged. The bullet struck him
in the foot and torso. The man was able to walk to the road, where two
Oshkosh men found him and called 911.
The man, whose name is not being released pending notification of
family, was airlifted to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Green Lake County
Sheriff’s Department continue to investigate.
