Fond du Lac man injured in hunting incident

The Northwestern

Authorities continue to investigate an incident where a hunter was shot this afternoon in Green Lake County.

A 47-year-old Fond du Lac man was shot in the foot and torso this afternoon while hunting on the White River Marsh public hunting grounds near Princeton, according to a press release issued by the Green Lake County Sheriff’s Department.

Emergency responders received a report that the man had been shot at 12:13 p.m. The preliminary investigation indicates the man was deer hunting alone near the White River Marsh on Country Trunk D. He was sitting in a tree stand when his gun discharged. The bullet struck him in the foot and torso. The man was able to walk to the road, where two Oshkosh men found him and called 911.

The man, whose name is not being released pending notification of family, was airlifted to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Green Lake County Sheriff’s Department continue to investigate.
