dont have to worry about ice here. I usually stalk rather than sit in a tree stand but for some reason that I do go up in one, I am extra careful. I dont care if there is a world record buck around and I scare it away, id rather live.

Let me go on the record here. If you shoot into a "moving bush" and kill someone, you should be prosecuted, period. In Texas, we call that:

Sec.19.04 (Penal Code) Manslaughter.
(a) A person commits an offense if he recklessly causes the death of an individual.
(b) An offense under this section is a felony of the second degree. (2-20 yrs in prison)

Once convicted that person will never legally hunt with a firearm again thus removing them from the problem.

Robo I agree 100% that law should be nation wide, in every damn state. To many hunting accidents happen because of this exact careless BS.

One better have positive verification and ID on their target, before they pull that trigger, not hidden distant movement.

I think similar laws are in place in most states. Texas just happens to have a fairly simple set of laws. Too many people a unwilling to accept this is something other than an "Accident". Recklessness is not an accident. Negligence is not an accident. Deliberately stupid is not an accident.

Even the anti-gun left does not push the prosecution of such offenders. They are too busy blaming the gun for the death to blame the person who pulled the trigger.
