Ohio Man Shot While Deer Hunting

State Wildlife Division investigators are trying to determine how a 19-year-old Newark man was shot to death Saturday while deer hunting.

Steve Burchard apparently became separated from three other members of his hunting party in a remote area of Licking County.

When they went looking for Burchard, they found him dead.

Wildlife Division investigator Ken Fitz says Burchard died of a single shot to the head from a muzzleloading rifle.

Buchard's death is the second known fatality of the week-long deer-gun season that ended Sunday.

On Monday, a 12-year-old boy was accidentally shot to death by his older brother in Vinton County.

The state is expected to issue final figures on hunting mishaps today.
