He needs to learn safety before trying to hunt with a firearm.

There are several VERY basic rules to firearm safety. My children and grandchildren learned them before they were allowed to shoot a real gun. I think that the situation you have just described violates ALL of them at the same time. Unfortunately, that is not unusual.

I know of a situation here in Michigan that is not the hunter's fault,yet the hunter was severly punished.Every firearm hunter must wear blaze orange on the head and chest,and there was a girl in her 20's deer hunting,she shot a deer,the bullet either missed or passed through the animal,it then hit a tree and ricochet'ed into a hunter's blind with a hunter wearing absolutely no orange at all,she rushed to help him because she heard him screaming,but he died later.She now from what I recall cannot hunt ever again,own guns,and must stand in front of hunters ed classes many times a year and explain her "mistake".If that isn't BS what is?I know he died,I know it was her bullet,but that wasn't an act of carelessness yet she gets treated that way.

When it comes to hunting I like to error on the side of caution. I will not shoot at it If first I have not Identified for shure what I'm shooting at.. I have missed quick shots on Grouse and rabbits because I'm careful. I figure it is only a deer or only a rabbit. You can not take a shot back after it has been fired. I have been hunting for a while now and it is not as important to me to make the kill. When I was younger and had less game under my belt I can remember how I ached to get a kill and that driving force could make you make bad decisions.
F.K.

Default Hunter education...

Is what you need to attend & pass if you were born before 1975 in Idaho, In
California every new hunter reguardless of age has to pass this course to get
a hunting license! (This might sound rather "un-American" to those of us that
were trained by our fathers who were veterans), & grew-up with their own
.22cal rifle to bring small game to the table). But, nowadays many fathers
do not know how to install a spare tire! Hunting "accidents" are rare in Idaho,
but, in all of the recent cases... all 3 of them were born after 1975! My
next door neighbor had his new roof installed just before the owner of the
roofing company was killed by a relative of about the same age that mis-
took him for a deer!

I can not say if the fella is a "real hunter" because I have never personally met the guy. I can say he made a terrible mistake that could of had a worse ending. He is lucky that he only shot his own foot.

Carelessness with a firearm is inexcusable. First rule is never touch the trigger unless you are going to fire. That prevents most accidents. And never trust a safety. Firearms often discharge through malfunctions. I spend a lot of time on the range, and I hardly ever go on weekends. The number of fools with guns is alarming.

Guns do not go off by themselves. When excited, people pull the trigger unknowingly because they walk around with their finger on the trigger, a big no-no.

Rabbit hunting with slugs???? Really......


Before hunting or handling any more firearms I would suggest some basic firearms safety classes.
