Default My neighbor accidentally shot his KID....

My neighbor was shooting his bow in his backyard, and his kids were playing on the swing.. he made a bad shot and it ricochet off of a tree that he uses as a back stop and hit his little boy in the leg...

THANK GOD HE"S OK... but he's gonna be hurting for awhile...


What ya'll think of that/

Why would you shoot outside when others are out? Also a tree is not a good backstop. It is round and if it hits it wrong it will ricochet off.

Glad to hear the kid was ok though.

Well, I think the father should be shot in the ass and call it even.

This example is the exact reason that nobody in a neighborhood should shoot a bow, which was a recent hot topic in the bowhunting column. Matthewsboy, I don't know if you're in a neighborhood either, but thank God if any kid got hit in the leg, it was his own son. [] It's a scary shame either way...

And that folks is the reason why it's illegal to shoot in a lot of residential areas, including mine. Glad to hear the kid's going to be ok.

I agree that the back yard when others are out there isn't the place for practicing , and a tree definetly isn't a good backstop as Zak say's .I think this guy just isn't very bright and shouldn't have a bow in his hands at all .I'm glad to hear the boy is o.k. I heard a story of a guy and his son hunting sheep and the father took a shot and the arrow hit a rock and deflected right into the boy's heart and killed him . I'm sure this guy will pay for this the rest of his life ,and I hope the guy your talking about has learned a valuable lesson by this.He should consider himself lucky.

Responsible people don't need bad press from idiots like that.
