I did.

This is a simple case of a complete frikkin’ idiot, a menace to society, who just shoots in the diretion of a noise, AFTER he shoots blindly from inside of his tent at a hog (note that the story does not indicate he left the tent prior to the first shot).

Is it possible that some people are just too frikken’ stupid to own guns?

Know your target. Know what's beyond your target. Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot. Don't point the gun at anything you don't wish to destroy. etc etc.

Either this was a drunk/hungover idiot, someone clueless, or this was intentional.

Hogwash.

I think he tried to kill her, and that is the excuse he invented claiming he thought it was a hog.
