MN: Man Injured In Hunting Accident Flown To St. Cloud Hospital


A bow hunter has been airlifted to St. Cloud Hospital after falling 30 feet from his tree stand in Crow Wing County Sunday evening.

Leroy Zollner called a family member to say he had been hurt but did not dial 9-1-1. The relative did not know where the stand had been set up. Several agencies were dispatched and deputies had to scour the property in Maple Grove Township to find Zollner.

The Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Garrison Fire Department and Zone 1 First Responders to get Zollner out of the woods.

The fall happened at 6:19. Zollner is 28 years old and lives in Merrifield. Also helping at the scene were North Memorial Ambulance Service, North Memorial Aircare, and the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Team.
