I thought you were, but some on here have said the same thing, and not tongue-in-cheek.

This “sound shot” nonsense I used to hear about from guys around here in northern MN and it always made me cringe.
I am incredulous at how often I read about hunters doing this.

This takes "ALL" the guess work out of it!

Orange or not! Identify your Target or don't shoot!

Don't shoot at movement or noise, (sound)!

In semi- communist CA where we have more laws & rules than anywhere no orange required. One hunting buddy shot a deer bless than 40 yards from camouflaged son in law he never saw tucked behind a fallen log. Scared the daylights out of him. Deer died on the spot but could have run right past son in law. Poor communication one of the guys moved into a hillside that was occupied already by the other.

In Utah bow hunting elk in a ghillie suit firearm bear hunters with dogs chased a big bear my way - luckily he winded me & left. Would not have wanted shooting going on in that situation- thanked the hunters for reminding me I enjoyed being alive.

States can make hunting conditions safer with common sense rules. Shooting without identifying your target is unforgivable.

I doubt he will, nor should he. ....however when people are involved, especially 12. You never know.....

Ain't that the truth. Even on here where people should know better, some have tried to blame this on overlapping hunting seasons, or the bowhunter for not wearing orange.

OJ spent a lot more than most of us have. He paid $1 mill to a legal team that specialized in jury selection. They guaranteed the client a jury that wouldn't convict no matter what the evidence. They did it using preemption in jury selection. They got a woman on the jury who would vote not guilty even if she'd seen him stab his wife in person.

The idea that a wealthy person can buy their own jury like that shows a big flaw in our legal system.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

Just wondering, whatever happened to the Pa. elk hunter that shot and killed a fella from West Virginia a couple of years ago?

He was charged with criminally negligent homicide. Looks like the trial is scheduled for June:
