A Marshall family is in mourning this week following a fatal hunting accident over the weekend.

Wally Dautenhahn, 42, died Sunday after being shot while hunting with his father, Walter Dautenhahn.

Tom Strother, a protection regional supervisor with the Missouri Department of Conservation, said the investigation into the shooting is on-going, but authorities have created a general sequence of events.

He said the accident occurred early Sunday morning on private property located about three miles south of Arrow Rock off Missouri Highway 41.

The Dautenhahns were turkey hunting in close proximity in a moderately wooded area with overcast conditions. At some point, Wally shot at a turkey and told his father he was going to retrieve the bird. A short time later, Walter saw a turkey and fired at it, discovering he had inadvertently struck his son.

Dautenhahn was a lifelong resident of Marshall, graduating from Marshall High School and working for Marshall Municipal Utilities. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his wife, Susan, and children Jennifer and Andy Dautenhahn.
