Two Wisconsin hunters died in gun-related incidents so far this
A 51-year-old Vernon County woman was killed Nov. 7 when she was
struck in the chest by a blast from a 10-gauge shotgun while duck
hunting with a 50-year-old man. The gun was pointed in her direction
when a dog stepped on the trigger.
A 19-year-old man died last Saturday while hunting in Wood County
during a deer drive when his hunting partner, a 20-year-old man,
thought he saw a deer and shot the victim in the chest. Neither
hunter was wearing blaze orange.
