American comedian and film producer Jay Leggett has died at the age of 50 after collapsing following a deer hunt.

The actor passed away from natural causes at the end of the first day of deer season in his native Tomahawk, Wisconsin, on Saturday (23Nov13).

Ironically, Leggett died doing what he loved - he produced a documentary about the joys of deer hunting in 2011, titled, To the Hunt: Deer Season in Tomahawk, Wisconsin.

Lincoln County sheriff's spokesman Mike Caylor states: "The victim had returned to the cabin from his deer stand on an Atv (all-terrain vehicle). When he got off the machine he collapsed and was found unresponsive by family members who immediately started Cpr (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)."

Paramedics were called but they were unable to save him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Leggett started his career as a stand-up comic and went on to land a part on U.S. sketch show In Living Color in 1993.

He soon added screenwriter to his resume and wrote, produced and acted in Matt Dillon and Christina Applegate's 2004 comedy Employee of the Month.
