PONSFORD, Minn. (AP) — A Florida man has died in an all-terrain vehicle crash during opening weekend of Minnesota's firearms deer season.

The Becker County sheriff's office says 55-year-old Michael Anthony Diieso of North Palm Beach, Fla., was traveling to his hunting site near Ponsford when his ATV rolled, pinning him.

Authorities got a 911 call around 8:30 a.m. Saturday of a hunter trapped under his ATV. Diieso died at the scene.

At least two hunters died in Minnesota during the deer opener. A 66-year-old deer hunter was shot and killed Saturday morning near Bemidji.
