MN: Crosby man dies in hunting accident

Crosby man dies in hunting accident

CROSSLAKE, Minn. (AP) A 25-year-old Crosby man has died in a hunting accident on the opening weekend of Minnesota's firearms deer season.

Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl says it appears Christopher Stirewalt accidentally shot himself Sunday while hunting in Fifty Lakes Township, north of Crosslake. He was wounded in the shoulder area.

Lt. Dave Larson says Stirewalt was with a larger hunting party of about three others, but was off by himself. He says a couple driving in the area found Stirewalt on the ground, in a wooded area visible from the road, about a mile north of County Highway 1. The incident was reported around 3 p.m.

At least two other hunters were injured in separate incidents in Cass County. The sheriffs office says a Brainerd area man believed to be in his 50s shot himself in the foot while hunting in the Chippewa National Forest about 5 p.m. Saturday. A juvenile fell out of a tree stand about 11:30 a.m. Sunday south of Hackensack and was taken by ambulance a Brainerd hospital.
