One person died in a hunting accident in Jones County on Saturday.

Details of the incident are sketchy. Jones County Sheriff’s Sgt. Bobby Gay said it happened at about 12:30 p.m. on Union Hill Church Road near the Putnam County line.

“We don’t know exactly what happened,” Gay said. “They are still investigating.”

No names are being released at this time, he said, and no other information was available. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the sheriff’s department are investigating.

Saturday was the first day of deer season for firearms.
