The sheriffs department says  47-year-old Richard Lepak died in the woods near Athens in the Town of Hamburg.  He was found below his tree stand.  Investigators believe he had just shot a deer, and probably died of natural causes.

EMS crews were called to the area near County Road F around 6pm. They were unable to revive the hunter.
