Default Sad - Another hunting fatality

Hill County, TX (~60 miles south of Dallas)--
Man dies Monday at a Fort Worth hospital after being struck in the chest with a shotgun blast while hog hunting in rural Hill County.

He was hunting with wife, father, uncle, and brother when the shotgun discharged around 3:45 Monday afternoon.

All I can add is that our hearts and prayers go out to the man's family.

Myself as well!!!!!! I wish that there was something that we could do here as a group to promote hunting/gun safety across the country. I just hope that all of us consistent members here keep this in mind everytime we go out in the woods.

Same here, it really hits home when you hear about accidents like that. That's the biggest reason that we don't do deer drives anymore, and haven't for a long time, you just don't know when someone might get too excited or lose track of where the other guys are(or are supposed to be) etc. It's not worth it. We don't even bring our long guns into the cabin, they stay out in the trucks.

it's upsetting to hear about these type of stories.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.

yeah, any hunting tragedy is bad
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
