This whole story is just unimaginable. I would just absolutely fall down and die if something ever happened to one of my girls. What a horrible thing. The thought of actually shooting your gun at something that you have not absolutely identified is beyond comprehension. I know that these things happen---but, I simply cannot figure out how in the hell people manage to do such a thing.
Maybe the camouflage clothing and bushes or whatever contributed to this...I'm sure it must have. But, in that case you should know WHERE everyone is! Wear an orange hat for God's sake! In this day an age we should be hunting in fireman's LIME GREEN-YELLOW flourescent space suits!! There are a zillion morons out there!! I'm not saying this man was a moron---although, there are plenty to go around...... but, THIS could have been prevented. I WOULD KNOW WHERE my kids were before I pulled the trigger!! That's like shooting a "burglar" in the PITCH DARK in your house without first IDENTIFYING who is there!! You are just asking for a tradgedy!
I feel utterly terrible for that poor man. --Ed
