Chippewa Co. (Press Release) - on 9/26/13 at 7:58 p.m., the Chippewa County Sheriff's Department and Cadott Fire and Ambulance responded to a property located on 20th Ave. just east of County Highway XX for a report of a male who was in the woods and not breathing.

After responding, the emergency personnel discovered that the Johnny F. Boyea, of Fall Creek, had been bow hunting deer on the property and had apparently fallen from his tree stand located approximately 23 feet off of the ground.  Boyea had been located by a relative he had been hunting with after he had not returned back to the residence.

Chippewa County Coroner also responded to the scene and pronounced Boyea deceased.  He was 61 years old. There is no foul play suspected in this incident.
