Man dead in apparent hunting accident

AUSTIN, Minn. – Minnesota deputies say an Austin man has died in an apparent hunting accident.

KIMT-TV in Mason City, Iowa, says authorities found the body of 44-year-old Bernard Olson on Thursday evening.

Fillmore County deputies were investigating a report of a missing person when they found Olson’s parked vehicle. They followed tracks in the snow to his body.

An initial investigation suggests Olson might have fallen on an arrow, injuring himself too severely to make it back to his vehicle.

Fillmore County is in the southeast corner of the state.
