A northeast Kansas sheriff says a hunter who drowned while trying to retrieve a duck at an icy lake was a member of the military.

Authorities initially believed the victim and a fellow serviceman fell into Milford Lake on Tuesday morning after their boat capsized.

But KJCK-AM reports Geary County Sheriff Tony Wolf later said the victim went out alone on a makeshift boat to retrieve a duck shot by his hunting partner from shore. Wolf says the victim stepped onto an ice sheet when the boat began taking on water, then fell through the ice.

A search for the body was suspended Tuesday. The victim’s name has not been released, and it’s not clear if the two men were stationed at the nearby Fort Riley Army post.
