Posted April 19, 2007 - Gannett Wisconsin Newspapers

STRONGS PRAIRIE — A 65-year-old Fond du Lac man died Wednesday as the result of a hunting accident.

At 12:20 p.m., the Adams County Sheriff's Department received a report of an apparent hunting accident in the town of Strongs Prairie, about five miles west of Arkdale, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.

Officers responded to the scene, and the investigation determined the victim was turkey hunting when he sustained an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound, the report said.

The victim had been hunting by himself in an open area on private property.

The victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was reported to have more than 40 years of hunting experience, the release said.

The incident remains under investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Adams County Sheriff's Department.

The name was being withheld Wednesday pending family notification.
