MADISON — A 70-year-old man was shot in the hand while hunting in Manitowoc County during the first day of the nine-day hunting season on Saturday, according to a spokesman for the Department of Natural Resources.
 
According to Jon King, DNR hunter education administrator for Wisconsin, a 17-year-old youth was shooting at a deer and his “shot missed its target and traveled about 280 yards and struck the victim in the hand.” The victim was taken to an Appleton medical facility, King said.
