I didn't want to sound like a jerk either so I avoided responding BUT I'm with you TG, I'd have to put that dude in a brief time out.

In my case a good discussion would have taken place with the outcome based upon the attitude after the lecture.

My original thought was along the same lines. I don't think I would have to worry for a couple days. Or at least until the swelling went down in his newly blacked eye, but I didn't want to get shamed for promoting violence to the youngsters on the forum. At least this time I ain't the only one.

Happened to me on a powerline about 8 years ago. I started screaming at the guy and he ran into the woods. He was about 250 yards uphill. I had plenty of orange on. I guess the guy wanted to see what I looked like. Maybe he plays with rainbow bright dolls too if you get my jest. Either way not a good feeling.

I had another occurance except it was a guy that we were hunting with. I did not know him well. I confronted him after and verbally walked all over him. When I am fired up I am very quick with words and most cannot get any words in. He said he was only trying to determine if it was me as I was approx 800 yards down a powerline. The guy next to him had bino's.
I never hunted with him since.

I have been shot one time in my life up close while duck hunting. The varmet hit me with a full load of lead from a 12 ga shotgun and a few pellets hit my brother-in-law who was in the rear of the boat. Luckily no permanet damage just black and blue. I am unable to write what my responce was.

Doesn't matter what we would do....it's a sad situation anyway you look at it. Or can be. A friend of mine's grandfather shot his granddaughters husband last year duck hunting. Killed him. Don't reckon he'll ever get over it. My friend did get him to deer hunt this year but says he's still tore up.....

That is awful scary stuff. I live in the smallest state in the country and absolutely avoid public land for this very reason. Fortunately our regs. do not allow you to hunt with a rifle only bow,muzzleloader,and shotgun. I am very lucky to be able to hunt a great piece of private property with a few very safe hunters. I probably would have called on him if it was me.

Southernman, I can't imagine shooting someone in a accident situation like that. Don't know how I would respond or if I could ever hunt again, it would take a while for sure. You're on the right track with the grinns!
