Isn't that roughly how Tulip O'Hare's dad died? It's been a while since I read Preacher but I still remember that picture.

That time of year again!

The bullet whizzed past the animal, pierced the wooden wall behind it and struck the man, in his seventies, in the stomach, the force told public broadcaster NRK. The victim was flown by helicopter to hospital but his injury was not life-threatening,

No, but what he left in the toilet was.

So, in Noray they don't have the "you can't hunt with rifles near residences" rules like the US?

Not as interesting as "shot on the moose by a toilet hunter".

"Shot on the toilet (by a moose hunter)" is a Norwegian death metal cover of a Bon Jovi song.

A Møøse once shot my sister ...

I've heard that moose shots can be very nasti!

What part of a man is the seventies?

How do you miss a moose? It would be like missing the sky.
 
2013-10-25 03:25:40 PM
The moose escaped unscathed.


At least the story had a happy ending.

I don't know what it is in Norway, but the three states I've hunted in the distance requirement, IIRC, was 100 yards. Given that one is hunting a large animal, the hunter was likely using something at least as big as a .308 or .30-06. A bullet like that can easily go a half-mile if it doesn't hit anything, say an old man on the shiatter. There's a good chance the hunter didn't really check beyond the moose to see if there was anything like a person or house. However given that he was probably a couple hundred yards away from the moose and cabins are usually made out of wood that matches the surrounding forest, I can see how it would happen. Absent anything else, I'd say it's unlucky more than anything.

A moose watching nearby in a black trenchcoat was heard saying  "He's, the one".

I was thinking it must have been the grunting.

Good one.

While he nodded, nearly crapping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door

I am always amazed at how some people fail to look to see where the round is going to go if they miss or it passes through the animal.

True story - My Ex and I used to rent a house right on an ocean bluff.  Because the Muni dead-ends at the high water mark, duck hunting is legal below the tide line.  Every damn year we would have 2 weeks of hearing the patter of shotgun pellets rattling against the side of the house, and once a particularly stupid person shot out the sliding glass door since he was hunting ducks with buckshot. (found 2 of the pellets in the broken glass)

And those are shotguns.  At least there was nothing down there to hunt with a rifle...

He died doing what he loved - dropping off some friends at the pool..
 
2013-10-25 04:10:35 PM
Møøse shots kan be pretty nastii.
 
2013-10-25 04:51:18 PM
Well, to be fair, the old man had severe constipation and the hunter mistook the sounds for a moose mating call.
 
2013-10-25 05:10:03 PM
Uh huh.

That guy was out hunting and just decided that he wanted to put a bullet hole in in the side of a shiathouse, but had no idea that it was occupado.

What might be worse is to actually see your own obituary when all that happened was non life threatening injuries.

Meh... "shot by a moose" would do.

Seems fair to only shoot at something that is able to shoot back.

As I always say, may we be preserved from a comical death.

Did it happen in Escanaba? Was it in the moonlight?

No, he was shot through the heart, and the hunter's to blame.  He gives moose hunting a bad name.
