Minnesota deputies say an Austin man has died in an apparent hunting accident.

AUSTIN, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota deputies say an Austin man has

died in an apparent hunting accident.

KIMT-TV in Mason City, Iowa, says authorities found the body of

44-year-old Bernard Olson on Thursday evening.

Fillmore County deputies were investigating a report of a

missing person when they found Olson's parked vehicle. They

followed tracks in the snow to his body.

An initial investigation suggests Olson might have fallen on an

arrow, injuring himself too severely to make it back to his

vehicle.

Fillmore County is in the southeast corner of the state.
