MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Four people are recovering after they were shot during the opening weekend of Wisconsin's gun deer hunt.

Two hunters shot themselves in the foot in two separate incidents in Oneida and Marathon counties. And, a 19-year-old woman was shot in the hand by a hunter in Fond du Lac County. DNR officials said the hunter was shooting at a running deer.

Earlier Monday, the Department of Natural Resources asked the public for help finding a person involved in a Washburn County shooting Sunday that sent one person to the hospital. It has since identified the individual.
