It is the weekend and I will be spending time doing stuff other than worrying about a nation that could care less.
In my younger days I was a hunter….mostly to help my family supplement meat for the table….when I went to the woods I would take three rounds….one in the rifle and two in my pocket….for I was taught to stalk and shoot only when you were sure of a kill…..
There are always stories of disasters committed by hunters….like shooting a family member or killing a farm animals by mistake….first how do you mistake a cow for a deer?
If you can’t then you do NOT belong in the woods with a gun.
This is where I pick up the meat of this post……
A hunter shot and seriously injured a hiker near St. Louis, Missouri, on Saturday, with police stating that the hunter mistook the man for a turkey. “It sounds like it was just a really bad accident,” a police spokesperson said, with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporting that it came on the second-to-last day of spring turkey hunting season. The Missouri Department of Conservation was running the hunt, and a sign near the entrance to the Lewis and Clark Trail warned that would be held until 1pm; the shooting occurred at 12:30pm, NBC News reports. Emergency responders had to use a utility vehicle to reach the unidentified hiker, who was airlifted to a nearby trauma center. He and the hunter remain unidentified.
The hunter was dressed in camouflage, and witnesses did not report whether the hiker was wearing bright colors. “It may have been an accident, but it is positively unforgivable that they allow people to hunt with firearms on Mother’s Day weekend on one of the most heavily traveled trails,” a local runner who uses the trail told the Post-Dispatch. “They need to mark that differently. There were families out there today with kids and dogs.”
This illustrates my point….this idiot does not belong in the woods armed with a gun….apparently he had NO idea what he was shooting….and he pulled the trigger anyway.
I cannot take my canine friend to the woods during hunting season for she is fawn color with a short tail with white on it….she looks like a white tail deer to morons.
Plus I do not trust many of the low IQ in-bred slugs with guns in our woods.
Another reason I do all my hunting at the nearest supermarket…..get all the meat I want without the mess….and most times it is a lot safer as well.
