SEYMOUR — Indiana conservation officers are investigating the Wednesday death of a Huntingburg hunter at the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge east of Seymour in Jackson County.
Jeff Rottet, 45, of Huntingburg, was deer hunting when he died of what appeared to be medical complications, according to authorities.
Conservation officers, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and Jackson County Emergency Medical Services were called to the refuge just before 7 p.m. Rottet, who had been hunting separately, was to have reunited with a group of hunters but failed to return to their vehicle, according to authorities.
Rottet was unresponsive when he was located by his friends. He was transported from the woods by EMS personnel.
An autopsy is to take place today at Schneck Memorial Hospital.
No foul play is suspected. Conservation officers are continuing the investigation.
