    It boggles my mind that this sort of stuff keeps happening. He was hunting and was hunting illegally after hours, so he was poaching. He sees what he thinks is a deer and shoots it with his pistol, mortally wounding a woman walking her dogs. So he wrongly targeted her. I am further surprised by the fact that he was making a ~200 yard pistol shot.

    Why he isn't arrested is beyond me. He killed her during the commission of an illegal act, so this goes beyond a simple "accident."

    These sorts of incidents are generally declining in number each year, which is good, but overlooked are the numbers of times people wrongly target horses, cattle, sheep, goats, etc., target the wrong native animal (elk for deer, moose for elk, grizzly for black bear, etc.) or hit occupied dwellings.

    Except in the rarest of situations must you pull the trigger while hunting. Proper identification of a target is paramount. Of course, this is in addition to other hunting and shooting safety sorts of issues about knowing such as brought up here... https://www.texasguntalk.com/threads/hunting-shooting-dead-cow-and-responsibility.82621/

    That wasn't sunset in Erie, PA and it's not going to be a sunset on any day of the current month.

    On the 22th it was 4:53pm. The shooting time is appropriated at 5:24p.m. Of course with no reports on what the lady was wearing....

    Unless she was wearing a deer costume, I don't see what difference it makes.

    The point being believing everything on the internet from a news source who's own by a liberal conglomerate.

    Research some idiots known as Vincent L. Sadusky and Warren Buffett himself.

    Nope. The published short story was written to induce an anti-hunter response. It could have been worded. Local death, woman dies from hunting accident'. Possibly safety related'.

    But it doesn't do that. It's liberal garbage.

    It wasn't a hunting accident. It was a moron who thought a woman was a deer.


    Their title isn't misleading. It doesn't paint it in a negative manner any more so than the events do. Sunset or not. The only safety issue I see is the hunter shooting a woman because he's a moron.
