  Two Local Fire Departments Busy on Wednesday Morning


  Two local fire departments were kept busy Wednesday morning, January 18th.

  The Stetsonville Fire Department was paged out Wednesday morning around 4:00 to the report of a milk truck in the ditch near Gad on Lekie Drive off Highway C.  No injuries were reported, eight Stetsonville firemen were on the scene and returned to the Stetsonville Fire Hall by 4:30 Wednesday morning.

  A house fire on Medford's south side Wednesday morning closed Highway 13 to traffic for a brief time.

  The Taylor County Sheriff's Department received a 911 call reporting a house fire at 901 South 8th Street in Medford.  Reports indicate that the Medford Area Fire Department was called out at 9:30 Wednesday morning to a rental house on Highway 13 South.  

  When firemen entered the home they saw a small fire near the washer and dryer.  They were able to quickly extinguish the fire.  It was determined to be a lint fire which started in a clothes dryer and when the flex pipe burned through, some clothes outside the dryer began to burn.

  Preliminary damage estimates to the home are placed at $10,000.00.  Medford firemen were on the scene until 11:00 Wednesday morning.

  GALLATIN, Tenn. — A deer taken down by a Sumner County hunter in November will likely be declared a world record in 2019.

  The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said after letting the antlers from the deer Stephen Tucker killed in November dry out for 60 days, it has been measured and it is a 47-point buck.

  “When I turned around and see him, I was coaching myself because I got upset the first two times I seen him and I can’t let it get me this time,” Tucker said in November after shooting the deer. “Who would have thought anything like that would have come out of Sumner County, Tennessee.”

  Before it will be declared a world record there is a two-year wait.

  The Boone and Crockett Club has to officially measure it before it can be declared a world record. The club only measures every two years, so it won’t be official until 2019.

Taylor County Hunting Close Calls  11/30/16


  While the Wisconsin 9 day gun deer hunting for 2016 registered no fatalities, there were several “close calls” in Taylor County. 

  Saturday afternoon officers were informed that a large hunting party was doing a deer drive in Western Taylor County when one of their party members was struck by a bullet.  The deputy report indicated that a 16 year old male hunter had been shot while hunting on Ness Road between Gilman and Thorp.  The youth’s injuries required him to be airlifted from Victory Medical to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield.  The report indicated that the victim was in town from Wyoming visiting his father.

  Sunday morning at 9:00 Jennifer Hartl called the dispatch center to report that she was sleeping with her 3 children when a bullet entered the room of their home which they were in.  Mrs. Hartl indicated there were hunters in the field and she yelled at them out the door.  The sheriff’s report indicates that the bullet recovered from the residence was suspected to be from a .270 caliber rifle after a comparison of each hunter’s weapon was completed by DNR and law enforcement officers.  The report indicated that a citation was issued to the hunter for reckless use of a weapon.
  As the involved hunters were being interviewed, dispatch received a report of a hunter who had been wounded in western Taylor County, town of Pershing.  The preliminary call indicated that a hunter had been shot in the head.  The incident occurred on South Pond Road by Rued Road.  A second call indicated that the victim’s injury was a graze wound only and the victim did not request an ambulance.  Officers were told that a bullet went through the back window of a pickup and grazed the head of a passenger Alex Tappe.  Preliminary reports indicate that a female juvenile was standing on a road when she shot at deer.  She stated she did not see any vehicles or people when she shot according to the deputy report.
  The 4th close call occurred later in the week in eastern Taylor County, at the Inn Between Bar of Goodrich, at 5:30 Friday morning while preparing for a hunt in the basement, an adult man was attempting to put on his shoulder holster when a fully loaded .357 pistol fell from the holster.  Upon striking the floor, the pistol discharged and a bullet went through a chair and struck a youth in the buttocks while he was sitting in the nearby chair.  The victim was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
  Agencies involved with investigating and assisting at these incidents include the Taylor County Sheriff’s Department, Wisconsin DNR officials, Wisconsin State Patrol, and Taylor County Ambulance.
