It's a sad day in St. Stephen as a father and son hunting trip ends tragically.

RCMP looking into the death of a 35-year-old man in woods near the Bordertown yesterday.

Just after 4pm, RCMP and other emergency officials responding to a report of a man being shot.

The Oak Haven man and his seven-year-old son were travelling on an ATV in the woods and when he went to get off the ATV, his loaded rifle went off wounding him.    His son walked about three kilometres to his grandparent's house and they called police but, when they returned to the scene he was dead.

The man's name is not being released until family are notified.
