Man shot while hunting

A 48-year-old man from Appleton was shot and died Sunday while hunting near a town named Bovina, the Star Tribune reported.

Authorities are not yet releasing the man's name, Laurel Steffes, a spokeswoman for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, said.

The incident happened at about 10:40 a.m., the Outagamie County Sheriff's office said in a news release

In a separate incident on Sunday, Fred Grunewald, 24, from Caroline was shot in the shoulder when a deer ran between him and another person. He was expected to survive the incident, which happened in Grant in Shawano County.

Saturday, the opening day of the firearms deer season, was incident-free, Steffes said.
