GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) - It was an improbable outcome for a deer hunter in northeastern Minnesota who fired one gunshot. He bagged two deer.

Bob Schuder, of Deer River, was hunting near Grand Rapids Sunday and took a shot at a doe that had wandered into a clearing with two fawns.

Schuder climbed down from his tree stand and inspected the deer he had just shot. He had killed a fawn, but the powerful bullet had lodged in its body. Schuder then saw a white spot in the woods and checked it out. He found his bullet had passed through a doe and became lodged in the fawn. Schuder had killed both deer with a single shot.

The Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/rC1Qnh ) says Schuder's nephew was party hunting with him, so they had tags for both deer.
