Meyer suffered extensive head trauma, but the sheriff's office ruled out a stray bullet from another hunter or foul play as causes of

death.

Authorizes said Meyer was moving through a heavily wooded area with thick underbrush toward a deer he had shot, and that his own gun fired the shot that hit him, according to a news release.

The incident was reported at 10:38 a.m. Sunday, and it remains under

investigation, the sheriff's office said.
