Authorities say a 10-year-old boy was accidentally shot and killed during a hunting trip in northern Utah.
   
The Cache County Sheriff's Office says the boy was sitting on the floor of a four-wheeler to stay warm when a hunting companion pulled alongside the vehicle. Deputies say the man got off his four-wheeler and was removing his rifle when it went off, hitting the boy around 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
   
Authorities say the boy died the scene, in the far southeast corner of a Forest Service area in Cache County. The sheriff's office says his body was transported back to Cache Valley.
   
Chief Deputy Matt Bilodeau says there are no charges pending.
