The body of Allen “Randy” Smith, 68, of Butler, Pa., was found Tuesday in a wooded area off Blockville Watts Flats Road in Ashville, where he had been hunting.

A call to the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office at about 3 p.m. prompted an investigation, which led to the discovery of the body.

Smith apparently had been in a tree stand, which collapsed. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
