The DNR is investigating five hunting accidents involving firearms from over the weekend. All were non-fatal, according to the agency’s Greg Matthews.
The incidents occurred in Wood, Marquette, Marathon, Door, and Douglas Counties. Matthews says two involved juvenile shooters, three were during drives, and all five were while shooting at a running deer. He adds that three were between members of the same party.
Matthews says most of the injuries were more of the “grazing variety.”
The gun deer season runs through this coming Sunday.
