An 83-year-old Minneapolis man suffered an injury after he rolled an ATV and became stuck while tending to deer stands in St. Louis County Wednesday.

The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office says John Botzet was reported overdue or possibly missing after he had failed to return to a hunting shack in Beatty Township after leaving in the early afternoon to check deer stands.
