Yes..... On a youth hunt with my son several years back. Across a field maybe 300 - 400 yards. Quite a thing to do with your son standing next to you. We dropped off the ridgetop into the woods out of sight.

I've seen guys get into the bad habit of using their rifle scopes in place of binoculars when checking out terrain or anything they want to view. This is a bad and dumb thing to do as sooner or later, as your experience as just shown, they will put that scope right on some other hunter or property, etc. Please don't use your scope for anything else but shooting at an appropriate target or game animal.

I ain't bragging but this is one of the reasons land ownership is great. I'd rather pay than play with idiots with a rifle.

I'm so glad we don't have to pay for leases around here. Here there are four classes of land. Public (either why bother/overhunted or a long drive to get to). Private land where you know the owner (pretty much free reign, no need to pay if you ask to hunt). Private land where you don't know the owner and it's not posted at all, no maintained fences if you wander from nearby properties, etc. And heavily posted private properties, where you may have a firearm pointed at you if you're caught.

Don't mean to be a jerk here but I would've walked up to him and cracked him in the head. There's more than enough risk factors for death in life and an ignorant hunter should not be one of them. Anyone who looks at another person through the scope of a loaded rifle needs to be adjusted big time!!!!!

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.

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.:ranting:

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!:bag:
