Ed Finnerty: FTFA: The Omaha father who accidentally shot his 18-year-old son while pheasant hunting in Iowa said Monday that he keeps replaying the accident but can't see what he could've done differently.Weird. I would have gone with, "Not shoot my son."
trivial use of my dark powers: Or, "I would have picked up my teen-ager permit so bagging him would be legal."
dahmers love zombie: Yeah, he's probably pretty happy they weren't deer hunting. A head full of #8 or so is gonna hurt like hell, but you'll get better. 2 or 3 pellets of 00 and that's all, folks.
jimmyego: Was I not supposed to do that?
"The Omaha father who accidentally shot his 18-year-old son while pheasant hunting in Iowa said Monday that he keeps replaying the accident but can't see what he could've done differently."
So rechecking your footing isn't something you could do differently? Jeebus, this kid won't make it to his 19th birthday if he keeps hunting with his dad.
twistofsin: I'll bet most of the people who criticize the father in this thread have never even hunted in their life, let alone walked on a surface that wasn't paved or floored in the past 10 years.
Aces and Eights: Reminds me of an old kind of naughty joke that goes something like this:A family is dining on a pheasant that the dad shot. Later the young son cries out from the bathroom, "Mamma! Daddy! Help, help! I'm peeing B.B.s!!"Dad says "Don't worry son, you just swallowed some buckshot. It'll pass."Later the boy calls out from his bedroom, "Help! Help!". His parents tell him to calm down, not to worry; he just swallowed some buckshot.The boy says, "No you don't understand! This time I was jerking off and I SHOT the DOG!"/poor ol' bird dog.//I'm sure he was fine. Probably not traveling at a high velocity.
Doc Daneeka: Funny how an article about yet another firearm-related injury in this country (I think this makes #7,355,456,232) quickly veers off into a seeming editorial about how hunting is actually really safe and awesome.Methinks the gun nuts doth protest too much.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Shouldn't a dude who shoots another person while hunting pheasant be criticized?
FunkOut: twistofsin: I'll bet most of the people who criticize the father in this thread have never even hunted in their life, let alone walked on a surface that wasn't paved or floored in the past 10 years.Yes, everyone who grew up in the country realises getting shot in the face is a normal thing.

Mrbogey: Eh, loose footing is something thought about more in hindsight. While it's always nice to think of every little thing, I think a lot of people would not think about footing unless they had it drilled into their heads.It's kind of like how few people check their headlamps, fluid levels, and tire pressure before motoring and yet it's supposed to be done as part of basic safety.
