WIEN - Jason Borchardt, 40, of Edgar was shot Saturday morning in a hunting incident off Highway N near the intersection of Highway M in the town of Wien.

The Marathon County Sheriff's Department received a 911 call at 9:04 a.m. from a member of the man's hunting party. He was shot in the upper chest near the shoulder; the wound did not appear to be life threatening, said Lt. Dale Wisnewski of the Marathon County Sheriff's Department.

It is suspected that the shot came from a party hunting to the east of where the victim was hunting, Wisnewski said. The names of the suspects have not been released.

The victim was transported to Aspirus Wausau Hospital by ground transport. The state Department of Natural Resources is investigating.
