BOVINA, Wis. - A 48-year-old man from Appleton was fatally shot Sunday while hunting near the town of Bovina.
Laurel Steffes, a spokeswoman for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, says authorities are not yet releasing the man's name.
The Outagamie County Sheriff's office said in a news release that the incident happened at about 10:40 a.m.
In a separate incident Sunday, a 24-year-old man from Caroline was shot in the shoulder when a deer ran between him and a member of his hunting party. Fred Grunewald was expected to survive the incident, which happened in the town of Grant in Shawano County.
And Sunday afternoon, a man received a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his leg in Washington County. Authorities believe the man was shot by someone else in his hunting party.
Steffes says that Saturday, the opening day of the firearms deer season, was incident-free.
