BOYCEVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - A hunting accident near Boyceville sends one man to the hospital in critical condition.

A spokesman for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation says 52-year-old Brian Kohnke, of Menominee, was involved in a deer drive with 20 hunters, a term used to flush deer into firing lanes.

Kohnke was one of five bystanders, and was shot in the stomach when a deer ran by.

DNR officials say the investigation is ongoing.

Kohnke was flown to a St. Paul, Minnesota hospital.
