EDMONTON - Two people have died in separate hunting incidents in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

RCMP say a 63-year-old man from Prince Albert accidentally shot and killed his 36-year-old son on Friday evening in the Rural Municipality of Porcupine Plain in eastern Saskatchewan.

Police say officers, EMS and the coroner had to travel by ATV to get to the scene and that the case is still under investigation.

Also on Friday evening, police say a young woman in northwestern Alberta died after it appears she was shot while hunting with her family.

RCMP say it happened about 80 kilometres south of Grande Prairie and that they're still working to figure out the circumstances that led to the shooting.

They say the woman was airlifted to Grande Prairie, but died in hospital there.

RCMP say the family was from the Vegreville area east of Edmonton.
