DODGE COUNTY — The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of the hunter found dead in his cabin near rural Reeseville  on Monday, November 21st.

Dead is 46-year-old James Greevers Jr. Officials say his 69-year-old father remained hospitalized as of Wednesday, November 23rd.

Officials received a call Monday evening to check on the welfare of the two men. This, after they failed to return home to Milwaukee from a weekend deer hunting trip.

Upon arrival, responding deputies did not receive a response when knocking at the door, but were able to observe through a window one of the men on the floor — unresponsive.

Deputies requested EMS and forced entry into the cabin and found Greevers Jr. dead and his father with a potential life-threatening medical problem.

Greevers Jr.’s father was transported by paramedics to a nearby hospital, and later transferred to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in Madison.

A cause has not been definitively determined, but carbon monoxide and other environmental causes are being investigated.
