St. Lawrence County Man Dies in Hunting Accident

December 12, 2011

From WWNYTV.com

A Russell man is dead following a hunting accident Sunday in St. Lawrence County.

St. Lawrence County Sheriff deputies say 49-year old Paul Hatch died of a gunshot wound to the chest while he was hunting off the Fordham Hill Road in the town of Russell just before 5 p.m. Sunday.

His hunting companion, 20-year old Tyler Soper of Edwards, told deputies he shot at what he thought was a wounded deer, but hit Hatch instead.

Hatch was taken to Canton-Potsdam Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The sheriff's department and state Department of Environmental Conservation officers are investigating.
