TOWN OF PESHTIGO — A 63-year-old man was treated for non-life threatening injuries Friday after being shot in the same wooded area where Green Bay hunter Cha Vang’s body was found earlier this year.

In what is being classified as a “hunting accident,” the man was shot in the upper back, according to the Marinette County Sheriff’s Department.

Responding to calls at 1:28 p.m. on Friday, the Marinette Rescue Squad and Bay Area Medical Center paramedics treated the man at the Peshtigo Harbor Wildlife Area off Harbor Road.

The incident is under investigation by the Department of Natural Resources.

Earlier this year, Vang’s body was found in the same woods. A 29-year-old Peshtigo man, James Nichols, is accused of killing the 30-year-old Vang on Jan. 5 after the men crossed paths while hunting. Nichols, 29, of Peshtigo allegedly shot Vang with a shotgun and then stabbed him before hiding his body under a log.

Nichols will stand trial Oct. 1.
