SwiftFox: So, in Noray they don't have the "you can't hunt with rifles near residences" rules like the US?
uncleacid: So he was shot in the head.

redmid17: SwiftFox: So, in Noray they don't have the "you can't hunt with rifles near residences" rules like the US?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.
