6th hunting death reported in W.Va. buck season

By The Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Division of Natural Resources reports another hunter has died in an all-terrain-vehicle-related accident.

The DNR says 60-year-old Alan Roscoe Crouse of Bluefield was killed Friday when the ATV he was riding flipped over.

Crouse suffered head injuries.

DNR spokesman Hoy Murphy says Crouse's death brings the total number of hunters killed during this year's two-week buck season to six.

That's one more than the total deaths during the 2007 season.

Of the hunter deaths this year, Murphy says two were ATV related, two died of apparent heart attacks, one fell from an elevated stand and one fell into a slurry pond.

Two victims were hunters from Virginia.
