WI: Hunter shot in stomach near Boyceville

November 29, 2013

From TheRepublic.com

BOYCEVILLE, Wisconsin — A Menomonie deer hunter is in critical condition after he was shot in the stomach by members of his own hunting party.
 
52-year-old Brian Kohnke was participating in a deer drive Thursday morning near Boyceville when he was shot. He was flown to a hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota, and is in critical condition Friday.
 
A deer drive is a hunting technique in which hunters attempt to flush deer into firing lanes.
 
Bill Yearman of the Department of Natural Resources says about 20 hunters were involved in the deer drive and Kohnke was one of five standers. Yearman says a deer ran by and several shots were fired — one hit Kohnke in the stomach.
