Thanks for this somber reminder that you can never be too careful when hunting.

Happens every year despite all the safety courses and reminders of safety.

TG I know it does happen
NH has a pretty good safety record but 2 shootings on opening day
it is just stupidity & that bothers me the second one this year was a stray bullet ricochet & that happens but the first one I think was the old "I thought he was a deer"
