    Probably in the kitchen Ky
    People act impulsively with guns when they dont think anyone else is in the woods.
    I personally dont think any hunter can afford to think it wont happen to them.

    Saw that on Fox’s website. Don’t even want to think about it.

    The guy that shot them was with them correct? Why are they so sure it was an accident? The stupidity level required to “mistake” a human for a deer is almost far too great to be believable.

    People might , but true woodsman and hunters do not, I believe they were having a drive, unless someone not involved with the drive,done the shooting ,everyone should have known where each was at or coming from.

    Sad thing but I have to wonder if there was any hunter orange was worn. Or is it even required in that state.

    I have a hard time understanding this as well. I cant imagine squeezing a trigger without being 1000% sure.

    I understand getting excited to shoot a deer. What I can’t understand is how you mistake any part of human being for a deer. Adult or child. Just don’t see how that happens.

    It's a wonder it doesn't happen around here with the Amish. The ones around this part of the country don't believe in wearing orange.
