A rural Clear Lake woman was shot Sunday evening, September 30, as she left her deer stand, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman, 33 years old, had been hunting on her parent’s property in Clear Lake Township, Polk County. After leaving her deer stand she walked into a field and was shot by a 17-year-old male from rural Star Prairie. The teen was hunting on adjacent property.

The woman was transported by ambulance to Amery Medical Center and later transferred to Regions Hospital in St. Paul. The sheriff’s office reported today that she is in critical but stable condition.

The matter is being actively investigated by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
