This hearkens back to the 2011 shooting that resulted in the death of a Marine reservist.
Always have a positive identification of your target. Tragic accident, a life lost and many lives changed by it. Prayers for all involved.
As one who has been shot at by deer hunters (twice no less) I really feel for the victim's family. Really surprised this guy got off. Probably had a thick wallet for excellent defense attorneys. Most of us would have been burned at the stake.
When I lived in Massachusetts one of the local talk show hosts would dedicate an hour or two each year on opening day to callers with stupid and/or wild hunting stories. Some of them are so out there that you wish that some people did not breed.
One of them was about a father and son who stopped their Jeep on a dirt road in a middle of a big field. All of a sudden the side mirror shattered. For a few seconds they had no idea what happened but then the Jeep got hit a couple of times by gunfire. Some idiots were way over by the tree line trying to shoot at a dear clear across the field, with the Jeep being in the middle. One can only imagine how much alcohol they have consumed.
I have heard enough stupid stories and seen enough "no hunting" signs with bullet holes in them that I want to be nowhere near any hunters.
Tragic and sad. Hope I never put my self in this situation!!! I'll let it walk if not 110% sure!!!
