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
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.
