    The Northern California trip didn't quite turn out as a peaceful father-son day in the woods.

    A Marysville man shot his teenage son in the hip during a weekend hunting accident in Northern California.

    Tehama County Sheriff Clay Parker said 16-year-old Justin McFarlane was hunting with his father on Sunday at Morgan Summit in Mineral, about 130 miles north of Sacramento.

    The father, 50-year-old Daniel McFarlane, was unloading a rifle when it fired. His son was sitting in the pickup truck when he was struck.
