Bowhunter Found Safe

A bowhunter was found safe Friday after failing to return before dark.

Family members became concerned for the man’s safety after no one was able to contact him Friday evening. The 27-year old male had headed out Friday to bow hunt, in an area near Marsh Rd. and Church Rd, southeast of Fond du Lac.

Attempts to contact the hunter were not successful, but a Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Deputy was able to locate the male, who stated he had managed to get lost while walking back to his vehicle, had been walking for a few hours in the dark, and his phone had died. The man was able to get back to his vehicle and was able to make contact with family members.
