WINCHESTER, Wis. (AP) — Winnebago County authorities say a hunter is in stable condition after he was shot in the face over the weekend.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Tim Eichman says the man’s injuries aren’t believed to be life-threatening.

He says the 27-year-old Appleton man was in stable condition Saturday night. No updated status report was available Monday.

Emergency workers were called to the Winchester area Saturday about 7:20 a.m. The man was conscious when they arrived.

Eichman declined to say whether the shooting was believed to be accidental or the result of foul play. An Oshkosh Northwestern report says deputies questioned three other hunters at the scene but no one was arrested.

The man’s name has not been released.
