I would say man shoots man, since this clown obviously either left the safety off or had his double barrel cocked.

Shotguns don't go off simply when stepped on.

They put their shotguns on the ground and lined up for a picture

First mistake - leaving a round chambered in the weapon at the end of the hunting day. Stoooooopid.

Ya gotta be smarter than the dog, people ...

It must be a hunting dog that doesn't believe in that "best friend" crap.

The Dog and the Dynamite

If you think YOU'RE having a bad day . . . the following true story should help put everything in perspective.

Seems a couple got a brand new, top of the line, Jeep Cherokee for Christmas and drove it to visit relatives in Michigan. The guys decided to do that male bonding ritual of duck hunting. So they load up the Cherokee with decoys, food, beer, guns, warm clothes, etc. and head off for the lake. Now it's a little known fact that when duck hunting in cold climates like that, it's common to drive the truck out onto the ice.

It's also a little known fact that, to break a hole in the ice for the decoys, a stick of dynamite is commonly used. (We are talking Michigan.) Now this particular stick of dynamite had a short fuse, estimated at 20 seconds or so. Normally you put the dynamite on the ice, light the fuse, and run away. But with only 20 seconds they didn't want to do that, they might slip while running. So the guy lights the fuse and throws the stick of dynamite out onto the ice.

Next thing you know, their well-trained Labrador Retriever dashes out onto the ice and, just as he's done several times before, picks up the stick (of lit dynamite) in his mouth and starts running back to the group of guys. The guys start yelling at the dog but, as he's played fetch so many times before, he just keeps bringing the stick back to his master. One of the guys thinks fast and loads his shotgun, and shoots the dog. As it's loaded with bird shot the dog isn't hurt much, but is confused. The guy shoots the dog again. The dog gets scared and runs, stick in his mouth, under the Cherokee.

The Cherokee is now at the bottom of the lake. The insurance company won't pay up because it was destroyed due to an illegal use of explosives.

The first payment of $475 was due December 15. Only 59 more to go . . .

A dog limps into a bar and says, "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw ... "

...well...some dogs shoot people...when they need it.

The next guy who unloads birdshot at me while I'm reposessing his Cherokee will get his ass blown off with it. I knew that Labrador outfit was a bad idea.
