A female hunter has died after being shot during a hunting outing in the Town of Caledonia Sunday, according to Livingston County Sheriff Tom Dougherty. 

Dougherty says the woman was hunting with several others well off of River Road on private land around 3:50 p.m. when she was shot in the abdomen. 

She was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Dougherty said no charges have been filed, but he is not ruling them out.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
