The body of a missing hunter who fell out of a boat in the Sherman County Reservoir was recovered Friday night.

The man was identified as Anthony Dush, 21, of St. Paul.

Nebraska Game and Parks Commission officers and the Burwell Dive Team found the body in the lake about 9 p.m.

Dush had been duck hunting near the reservoir with another person the day before. While they were traveling across the lake, their boat capsized. The other hunter swam to a cabin nearby to call for help.

The death is still under investigation.
