Duck hunter dies after boat capsized in Green Lake County

A duck hunter is dead after his boat capsized in Green Lake County. 

Deputies said reports came in about a missing duck hunter around 2 p.m. Saturday on the Fox River in the Town of Marquette. 

Officials organized a search and a half hour later a victim was located and brought to shore. 

Deputies said two duck hunters and a dog were returning from a morning hunt when high wind and waves capsized their boat. 

A 47-year-old Berlin man and the dog were able to make it back to shore and call 911. 

A 52-year-old Princeton man did not make it back and was pronounced dead. 

The incident remains under investigation.
