Hunter in Critical Condition After Being Shot in Douglas County
WASCOTT, Wisc. - A hunter who was shot in Douglas County Sunday morning
remains in critical condition at the Essentia Health-St. Mary's Medical
Center of Duluth.
A DNR spokesman says 32-year-old Nicholas Bitz of Madison was shot in the
shoulder during a deer drive in Wascott, Wisc.
DNR officers continue to investigate that incident and four other
non-life-threatening hunting shootings over the weekend.
They say all the shootings happened because the shooters did not check to
make sure no one was behind their targets.
