Ya never know. I hunted a piece of land untill the owners son wanted to start bow hunting. They were telling me how good he was cause he could hit a round hay bail as they rolled it down there driveway. He had no idea what a draw length, weight, or arrow spine was but he can hit a rolling target so he's ready to hunt.

I worry about anyone out in the woods. It baffles me how many accidents happen each year. This one has stuck with me since I first read it. http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/...nting-accident

I've never know anyone to "shoot at movement" but they're out there. Certainly most hunters that "shoot at movement" probably won't admit it, but when you see a title like this, it didn't surprise me. I was just glad it was in good fun.

Ya, glad it was just a joke... Unfortunately there are people out there that do shoot at movement in the bushes.. Those people have no business hunting, AT ALL!!! I think its mostly first time hunters and out of towner's that just want to bag something.. I just don't know why they think that shooting at movement and not knowing what there shooting at is ever a good idea....... People that do that should have there hunting privileges taken away, PERMANENTLY!!!

They outlawed using Buckshot for deer(in NY) probably just for this reason. I agree guys, target identification(and beyond) should be top priority. Another thing that sickens me is finding piles of beer cans in the woods, left there by deer hunters!
