Ohio Man Dies Of Heart Attack On W.V. Deer Hunt

GRAFTON, W.V. (AP) - The Division of Natural Resources says at least one hunter has died in the West Virginia woods during this week's buck season.

Spokesman Hoy Murphy says a 68-year-old man from Killbuck, Ohio, died Monday in the Wilson Ridge area of Taylor County.

Cpl. John Ozalas of the Law Enforcement Section is investigating, but Murphy says the man apparently suffered a heart attack while dragging his deer out.

The victim's name hasn't been released.
