SIREN, Wis. (AP) - An Illinois man is the second hunter to be accidentally shot during Wisconsin's deer season.

Burnett County Medical Examiner Mike Maloney says 29-year-old Scott Kiefer of Montgomery, Illinois, was killed Monday afternoon about 20 miles east of Siren.

Investigators say Kiefer was shot by another member of his hunting party when a rifle discharged after getting caught in some brush.

The group was tracking a wounded deer at the time. The shooter was 54 years old.

The first hunting fatality was an 18-year-old Saxeville man who was fatally shot by his 63-year-old grandfather who mistook him for a deer on Sunday.
