A 21-year-old Conner man died in a hunting accident on the final day of the state's general hunting season.
Ravalli County Sheriff/Coroner Steve Holton said sheriff's deputies and a deputy coroner responded to a fatal hunting accident Sunday morning, Nov. 28, in the West Fork area of Ravalli County.
The man was found near a trailhead by people who notified the sheriff’s office.
He died from a single gunshot wound, according to a press release.
Holton said the investigation is still under way, but at this point there is nothing to indicate the incident was anything other than a tragic accident. The victim was hunting alone, and there is no evidence any other people were involved.
The Ravalli County Sheriff's Office extends their sincere sympathies to the family and friends of the young man.
The victim's name is not being released until the family has time to notify relatives.
