Three Dead During Opening Weekend

MADISON, Wis. (WHBL) - Wisconsin has recorded its first shooting death of a deer hunter in three years. Officials at Fort McCoy said 22-year-old Thomas Stamborski of Milwaukee was found dead of a gunshot wound, in a designated hunting area of the Army base near Sparta. The incident happened on Saturday. The fort said the victim was a civilian who was not connected with the Defense Department. The Army’s Criminal Investigation Command is investigating. Fort McCoy officials said they issued two-thousand permits on 46-thousand acres of land that were opened to deer hunting. The D-N-R had gone two straight years without a hunter being shot-to-death – the first time that’s ever happened. Only three November gun seasons in the last 160 years did not have a fatal shooting in Wisconsin. At least three hunters died during this season’s opening weekend. The other two were reported earlier. 51-year-old Shaun Lemanski of Green Bay died after he fell from a tree-stand in the Marathon County town of Cassel west of Wausau. And 51-year-old Steven Jackson of Antigo – the head of the Langlade County Forestry Department – was found unresponsive Saturday evening in a wooded area near Gleason. Foul play has been ruled out, but the death is still being investigated.
