Crosby man dies in hunting accident
CROSSLAKE, Minn. (AP) A 25-year-old Crosby man has died in a hunting
accident on the opening weekend of Minnesota's firearms deer season.
Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl says it appears Christopher
Stirewalt accidentally shot himself Sunday while hunting in Fifty Lakes
Township, north of Crosslake. He was wounded in the shoulder area.
Lt. Dave Larson says Stirewalt was with a larger hunting party of
about three others, but was off by himself. He says a couple driving in
the area found Stirewalt on the ground, in a wooded area visible from
the road, about a mile north of County Highway 1. The incident was
reported around 3 p.m.
At least two other hunters were injured in separate incidents in Cass
County. The sheriffs office says a Brainerd area man believed to be in
his 50s shot himself in the foot while hunting in the Chippewa National
Forest about 5 p.m. Saturday. A juvenile fell out of a tree stand about
11:30 a.m. Sunday south of Hackensack and was taken by ambulance a
