A person was killed, shot by a weapon meant to kill. Maybe legally an accident but nonetheless, in the grand scheme of things, I'd say some negligence. Is it ever worth bagging a bear and firing at what you see as a bear, in actuality not?

On seeing it, many will say war is murder. Just my feeling about what then may happen to any of us!

Not that. It seems you are out of sorts so to speak. Gang bangers, enviros, that talk as it pertains to hunters/hunting isn't making sense to me.

Don't worry, most of us duck hunters don't like you either. Anti-political, non-consuming, quiet types. And yes, we are ALL car dealers (what's wrong with car dealers by the way? - another example of your ignorance - what! you think you got screwed by a car salesman one time??? Move on man...).

I drink like a fish and shoot better when I'm wasted. Then I turn up my ghettoblaster and start yelling at the birds, my fellow hunters, the fish and game guys, and anyone who will listen. Then I throw my empty bottles of Jack into the air and sing Confederate army songs! ARRRGGGHHH!

Don't be such a pretentious snob...

Oh yeah?!!?

Well, I can shot four Jack bottles throwed up in the air. Backards even. :twisted:

And I did not even catch that there was no adult present. Only another minor. Yes. Such an activity should be illegal without an adult present, or give them adult time. There's no excuse for what happened. You either know what you are shooting at, or it's murder.

It's not murder. It's not premeditated nor is there a motive. It's an accident, a very tragic and traumatic accident, but still an accident.

We already addressed that. Tanngrisnir3 had the correct response. Equating it to an accident is not correct. You might as well just say a truck driver who goes and gets shitfaced and slams into a schoolbus at 80 mph killing everyone (but himself) in a massive ball of flames is just an accident.

Around here there are alot of people who live for beer, four wheelers and hunting so now and again you get an unpleasant mix. One guy got shot while driving in his truck because a hunter (who if I remember had a few to many) thought his roof rack was a pair of antlers. I can just imagine what was going through his mind.. Ewwwe that's the biggest darn deer I ever saw. Wait til I show the boys this un. *hiccup*" Also apparently a kid almost got shot because she was wearing white mittens and someone thought it was the tail of a deer. It's all about wearing orange here, at least a hat or something. I don't know what you can do about your car...mine has a roof rack and it's white! Lethal combination...I better not drive near the woods for awhile.

This was a real case in suburban Maine, where a young mother was hanging clothes IN HER BACKYARD, and was wearing white mittens. She was mistaken for a deer, shot and killed. The case went to court where the hunter was tried for manslaughter. A jury of his peers (old, feeble minded hicks with poor vision) found him .............drum roll.................. not guilty.

The lesson here? Come hunting season, stay in your house til it's over. Unnerstand, son?

Unfreaking believable. I wonder if someone shot the hunter on the street, thinking he was a menace to society, would receive the same treatment from a jury. Like I said in an earlier post, it's nice to see gun advocates actually accept some responsibility for the deadly weapons they carry around.

Peter Anderson, his hunting companion that day, heard Rogerson cry out, "I've shot a human being! Oh, God! Why does God allow this to happen?" Rogerson saw the wound in her chest and tried to stop the bleeding with some kind of compress. It was too late.

Oh good greif. Another ignorant jackass who is probably proud of calling himself simple, shoots a woman in the chest himself and tries to blame it on God. Reason enough to hang him right there.
In the wake of the tragedy, customers would make a point of coming by to offer him support. "He's probably one of the most sensitive, sincere persons I've ever known," says Brown

So good that he had support. It must be tough continuing on after shooting someone, being out $20,000. :roll:

It was a case of an inexperienced hunter shooting at whatever slightly deer colored thing moved. It was a pretty isolated case and usually it is hunters shooting each other, not hikers.

I will hike, but not bushwhack during deer season, except for SAR related activities, but it is usually only the dogs that get shot at (and I think those shots are not accidental...)

She was wearing a blue jacket. I've never seen a blue deer.

This case is the precise reason that, no matter the season, I'm in red or orange, and my pack is red as well. I won't risk it.

Just better hope someone doesn't mistake you for a Red-tailed deer, if such a thing exists. Maybe in their frenzy they'd mistake you for a Red-tailed Hawk. . .

I remember the case Fort provided. It is unfreakin' believable. They could'nt find any "peers," that were a bit more sane?
