Duck hunter stuck in mud for half a day
STACYVILLE, Maine (AP) — A man who found himself stuck in the mud is now free.
WMTW-TV reports that game wardens rescued a duck hunter early Wednesday morning in northern Penobscot County.
Wardens say that at 2 a.m. Wednesday they found the 57-year-old man standing on top of his boat in waist-deep water. The man had been standing there since 2 p.m. Tuesday.
The man’s wife had called wardens and said he was overdue from a hunting trip. Warden didn’t release the identity of the man, who told wardens that the mud and vegetation prevented him from swimming to shore.
