My prayers go out to his family. I hate to say it, but how in the world do you mistake a person wearing blaze orange of being an elk!!!!!! The guy who killed him at a minimum should never be allowed to hunt again!!!!! The man is an idot and a slob hunter!

I' ll go one better Taz. He' s a criminal, and needs to be in jail. Then have all his hunting priviledges revoked for life. There' s no way a reasonable thinking person should make that mistake. And if he' s got some mental disorder, never should have been issued a license.

And, every dime he makes in jail (don' t even get me started on that topic) should go to the family of the man killed. Then, a portion of his pay when he gets out of jail should go to any kids the guy had until they are 21 years old or out of college, if they go.

Am I being too rough??

what a tragedy, My heart and prayers go out to his family and to us all. It is a shame that this is the kind of press that gets mainstreamed more often then the good things us hunters do.

I wouldn' t jump to too many conclusions before all the facts are known. Maybe the shooter is colorblind. I hear guys with colorblindness see blaze orange as tan.

It' s a sickening thing to happen though.

Even a colorblind hunter (with limited brains and common sense) should know the difference between a two-legged hunter and a 4 legged 600 lb elk, blaze orange or no blaze orange. Shootings like this are unexcusable.

You' re absolutely right, formula1. I didn' t say colorblindness is an excuse for violating one of the primary safety rules of hunting: be sure of your target and know what' s behind it.

I was just addressing the questions about how someone couldn' t tell the difference between blaze orange and an elk.

Some of you guys crack me up...like this event is just unbelievable and you can' t fathom how a guy could do such a dumb thing but I see yo yo' s who are self proclaimed hunters all the time and it is a wonder to me that we don' t read more articles like this. I don' t go near the woods during gun season and am cautious all the time during archery season for gun toting poachers. The eyes can play funny tricks on the eyes of an idiot with buck (bull) fever and a gun in his hand and 100+ yards between he and the intended target. It is a very sad tragedy and my heart goes out to the family. However, as unfortunate as it may seem, this won' t be the last story like this that we read in the upcoming months. Let' s be careful out there.

Regardless of the " yo-yo' s" you' ve encountered, this is not only unbelievable, but should never be tolerated. If we don' t police ourselves, we won' t have this tradition very long.
