CADOTT, Wis. -- A woman was accidentally shot and killed while hunting in some Chippewa County woods, authorities said.

Sandra L. Marion, 46, of Cadott, was hunting with a group of people in the town of Sigel when she was shot Tuesday, said Wendy Weisensel, a spokeswoman for the Department of Natural Resources.

Investigators were calling the shooting an accident, Weisensel said.

Marion and others were participating in a deer drive, when hunters walk through fields or woods to drive deer toward other hunters, said Capt. Gene Gutsch of the Chippewa County Sheriff's Department.

"We are not sure where the shot had come from, nor which individual or individuals had been shooting,'' he said.

Marion's death was the second fatal shooting accident during the state's nine-day gun deer hunt, which started Saturday, according to the DNR. A man was accidentally shot Saturday in Burnett County. Another man died Saturday when he fell from a tree stand near Woodruff.
