Two hunters died on the opening day of the gun-deer season.
Marquette County Sheriff’s deputies say a 57-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound in his ground blind. The Marquette County man was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 62-year-old Shawano County man was found dead in his tree stand on private property in the Town of Westfield by a member of his hunting party. The coroner says an autopsy shows he died of natural causes.
Three other hunters were wounded by gunfire elsewhere during opening weekend.
Those shootings happened in Brown, Shawano, and Forest counties.
