I saw this on Koin.com this morning and it it so sad. There's just no excuse for something like this happening. It makes me sad and angry at the same time. There is no reason this kid should have died. GRAND RONDE, Ore. - A 15-year-old Salem boy was shot and killed in a Sunday morning hunting accident. Yamhill County Sheriff Jack Crabtree says the accident happened at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday, about three miles north of Grand Ronde hear Highway 22. Apparently, the boy's uncle mistook him for an elk. It was a family hunting outing. Crabtree says the boy, his father, sister and the uncle who killed him were hunting near the 59000 block of Highway 22, "In an area where the party had seen elk earlier." The boy was wearing camouflage clothing, and the uncle , according to Crabtree, "fired through heavy brush." I am normally not for any more govt. interference in people's lives and activities than necessary, but I wish Oregon would start mandating Hunter Orange clothing during big game firearms season. Not saying that would have prevented this accident, but it might have. I can't imagine being the Uncle having to live with the thought of killing his Nephew for the rest of his life.
