When ever I hear of things like this, I wonder how many “points” the young man had? How could you shoot something you can't see? Fathers don't teach their children gun safety, so we have “accidents”( I hate to even use the word), when they are older.

“When ever I hear of things like this, I wonder how many “points” the young man had?”

I’ve seen people do incredibly stupid things while hunting.

When I lived down south there was a guy that was shot out of a tree stand while wearing the required minimum hunter orange.

Always suspected murder in that case.

Hunting is just like driving: You damn well better know what you are doing and you’d better pay attention.

It also pays to be selective about who you hunt with.

Fortunately, these type of accidents are extremely rare.

Fatal firearms accidents have decreased in both absolute numbers and in the rate per 100,000 people, even though the population has increased and the number of guns per person has increased.

The rate of fatal firearm accidents has dropped 94% since 1910.

That is a tremendous accomplishment that you will never see in the MSM.

unfortunately the words “accident” and “negligent” have become interchangable.
