DODGE COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) – A Milwaukee hunter found dead in a cabin in Dodge County Tuesday has been identified as James S. Greevers Jr., 46.

His father, James S. Greevers Sr., 69, also of Milwaukee, was found unresponsive and is still recovering in a hospital.

The medical examiner’s office is investigating the hunter’s death but the sheriff’s office says carbon monoxide is being investigated as a possible factor.

On Nov. 21, the Sheriff’s Office was called to check on a father and son staying at a cabin in rural Reeseville. The men had failed to return home to Milwaukee after their weekend deer hunting trip.

Deputies knocked on the door but there was no answer. They looked in a window and saw a man on the floor.  They forced entry in the cabin and found the son dead and the father very ill.

“A cause has not been definitively determined, but carbon monoxide and other environmental causes are being investigated,” reads a statement from the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office says it’s hopeful the elder Greevers will make a full recovery.
