Man dies of gunshot wound while hunting

BEAVER COVE -- Wardens are investigating the death of a 55-year-old New Gloucester man who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound while hunting in Piscataquis County.

The Maine Warden Service said Ernest L. Russell III went hunting by himself on Prong Pond Mountain in Beaver Cove Township shortly after noon on Saturday, the final day of deer hunting season.

When he didn't return, his wife notified officials.

Wardens located Russell's vehicle by activating its OnStar emergency notification system, and then followed tracks in the snow to locate Russell.
