Shooter gets a pass for this one, this guy is an ass for showing up in a deer costume.

WTF is with Great Lakes region hunters and shooting at anything that moves?
You crazy farkers and your deer drives and bush blasting.

The victim was found with a bullet wound to the top of his head.
Police said there were two hunters at the scene and one of them came forward admitting he thought he shot at a deer.


Which one fired the shot?

For a healthy number of hunters, hunting is their excuse to drink when it's too cold to fish but too warm to ice fish. That alone should tell you plenty.

Deer in the wild typically only live for 4 - 10 years.  Even in captivity, they may only last to 20 years old.

How do you confuse that with an 81 year-old guy?

Not a hunter, just asking questions.

Last time I went hunting I shot a deer.  When I got to it, there was a guy.  I thought he was trying to steal my deer so I waved my rifle at him and said "step away from the deer, buddy.  It's mine!".
Guy said "okay. Just let me get my saddle."

The one that is male unless they are playing pronoun games.

It's ridiculously easy to not shoot a hunter by mistake.

I personally have accomplished it for half a century.

Mantle's Billy Martin cow-shooting story is another one I love.

"In the story, Mantle tells of being on a hunting trip in Texas with Martin, and stopping at a farmhouse owned by a doctor friend of Mantle's. Mickey asks for permission to hunt on his land, and the doctor enthusiastically agrees but asks for a favor. Would Mickey be willing to shoot the doctor's mule, which he must put down but can't bring himself to do it himself. That's so bizarre that it should raise all kinds of skepticism, but as Mantle tells the story with such detail and believability, I suppose folks just get sucked into the tale. Mickey agrees to do it, but then decides to play a trick on Martin.

Mantle returns to the car, grabs his rifle and feigns anger, saying the doctor had refused them permission to hunt on his land. He then shoots the mule that's in the barnyard, presumably startling his hunting mate, but apparently not quite in the manner Mickey had hoped. As the mule drops dead, Mantle hears three more shots and looks over to see Martin holding his own rifle and proclaiming triumphantly, "I got three of his cows!"    "

After realizing he shot a man, police said the hunter began rendering first aid.

BIg mistake.  His claim of mistaken identity would have been much more believable if he field-dressed the old man and tied him across the fender of his truck...
 
2021-12-06 7:30:20 PM  
I assume they're looking through a sight, right? How do mistake a person for a deer?

Unless you're just shooting blindly at movement and can't really see what it is. In that case, the hunter should be charged with something for not properly identifying his target.

EVERY "mistaken" shooting is negligence.

There's no other way for it to happen.

Failure to identify the target, failure to account for what's behind the target and careless handling of firearms account for about 97% of hunter shootings.

The rest are murders.

Wisconsinite as well.  Do you remember the incident a decade back when the guy sat behind his son and told him to duck after shooting so far could take a follow up shot?   You can imagine how that ended.

Participated in one deer drive, almost got shot. Bullet missed me by a foot and I'll forget remember that sound.  Never again. Didn't kill the guy who shot at me but never saw him at camp again after the lecture I gave him in front of the group.

Worked at a northern Michigan gas station / party store in college, and many hunters were falling down drunk when they stopped in at 4 am ON THEIR WAY OUT TO GO HUNTING. They'd stagger through the store with a rifle slung over their shoulders, giggling and talking too loudly like drunks do. I'm honestly amazed this doesn't happen far more often than it does.

Cheney wasn't shooting at a quail, he was drunk and tripped over something with the safety off.

It was ballistically impossible for that shooting to happen as claimed, too many shot in the lawyer's neck and head from too low an angle.

I didn't look into it that far obviously and I won't argue it. Just saying that there's no firearm accidents, only negligent incidents.

That's entirely true.

I looked at every scrap of what was publicly released about that shooting and the lawyer HAD to be closer to Cheney's gun than they claimed to catch almost the entire shot charge and the gun was lower than his head, shooting upwards.

Exactly how it happens when quail hunters are on line and somebody fires a shot while carrying their shotgun in a low-port carry.

There was no reason police weren't allowed to interview Cheney for two days except to allow alcohol to metabolize.

We even had hunter orange dog collars for our dogs when we had a farm.

This is the third time I've read someone mistook a person for a deer and I'm sure it's happened dozens of times. One lady was wearing a brown coat and had white mittens making her look like a white tailed deer. That one was 30 years ago I think.

You don't go walking anywhere near where people hunt without wearing orange.

Hunting may be more dangerous for the humans involved.

80 year olds hunting and picking each other off; remember this one from last week, or the 70 year old bear hunter who got a clean kill, this one in Iowa, this one in PA, hunter versus teens using his deer rifle, and then there's this kid who went hunting with, or perhaps hunting for his uncle.

How about this one from yesterday, this one in August, but 70 years too early.

Just because he was the ex-boyfriend with the distinctive headlights coming back from a party, after having relations with her friend, when she had fark-all reason to be there doesn't mean she is a murdering old lady murderer.
