A Milwaukee man is dead after a hunting accident in Sauk County.

The Sauk County Sheriff's Office said they received a call around 10:35 a.m. on Sunday for a hunter who had fallen out of a tree stand and had fatal injuries.

Authorities say 50-year-old Jacob Herr was using a self-climbing tree stand on public hunting land with a family member on Tower Road in the Town of Greenfield.

The sheriff's office said Herr was found by a hunting companion near the base of a tree. He was wearing a safety harness, but it was not attached to the tree.
