Woodcutting accident (death)
« on: January 03, 2003, 07:27:31 PM »
Just heard about a death of a 55 year old at, or near,  Presque Isle, WI (far north on the UP border) on the 31st of Dec. '02.  Anyone know more about what happened?  If this is an inappropriate question, please ignore. I thought maybe there may be something to learn here. He had his own construction company in southern WI, and had hunting, woodcutting, and bobcat experience.  :(
