“The victim had returned to the cabin from his deer stand on an ATV,” the sheriff’s statement said. “When he got off the machine he collapsed and was found unresponsive by family members who immediately started CPR.”

Leggett’s 2011 film “To the Hunt: Deer Season in Tomahawk, Wisconsin” documented deer camp life and “the fun, family and fraternity of the hunt,” according to promotional materials.

Paramedics were unable to revive Leggett and the coroner pronounced him dead at the scene, Caylor said.
