Two die in deer hunting accidents

The Associated Press

WHAT'S NEW: There were five firearm-related accidents during the opening weekend of Wisconsin's nine-day deer hunt. A 66-year-old Danbury man was fatally shot as he participated in a deer drive in Burnett County, and a 44-year-old Lake Tomahawk man died of head injuries after he fell from a tree stand near Woodruff.

DEER KILLED: Hunters registered 161,286 deer during the first two days of the season, up about 8,000 from a year ago, according to preliminary counts.

THE SAWYER COUNTY AFTERMATH: No problems occurred in Sawyer County, a year after six white hunters were killed by an Asian hunter following an angry, racially charged confrontation over trespassing.
