Sad part is, his own uncle fired the shot.

Be careful out there.

Hey, same thing happen to a guy I went to high school with except he shot his uncle. I don't know exactly what happen, only that he shot his uncle by mistake. It's sad.

i simply cannot comprehend how that can happen. it just amazes me how rock stupid people are. firing into brush becasue it moved. how is that moron sure he has a heart/lung shot or a shoulder shot???? how does he know it wasnt a bear and shot over its head to piss it off?? just disregard any sort of common sense and crank off rounds into the brush...

that is EXACTLY the sort of individual that deserves to lose his freedom for a good long time. there is no excuse for such things. shooting an animal through and through and the round glanceing off a rock or some hidden object and streaking off and accidentaly hitting someone is one thing but just cranking rounds into a brush pile??

I agree JonM, an accident like this one should never have happened. No ethical hunter would take a shot through heavy brush at something moving that he couldn't possibly identify.

It seems like this happens every hunting season. What a tragedy.
