Michael, you are 100% correct. If you didn't do it.. someone down the road might be mourning the loss of a loved one because of these idiots.

I grew up in a hunting family and was allowed to use a gun at an early age with family. The hunting was a family affair whether it was birds, bunnies or bucks. I can remember an aunt or an uncle lecturing someone on "where's that barrel pointed now? or do you know where everyone is at this moment?". I do it to my kids when they hunt with me to this day. I hunt a lot of varmints at night. I have invited people out to hunt with me, some have never been asked twice and I tell them why. There is no second chance and we must police our own.

Re: idiots with guns
The guy is showing the entry wound of a .270.
He was with several mates and was going to retreive a deer that had just been shot ,when his mate shot him mistaking him for deer.
