Default Coyote hunter killed

This happened here in northwest ohio about twenty miles from my town. Coyote hunter was killed when another hunter was in the same area. The other hunter was spotlighting and seen eyes and took the shot. Heres the link to the complete story. http://www.limaohio.com/story.php?IDnum=21560

Horrible story. However i don't think thata humans eyes reflect in the dark like a deer coyote etc...i believe it has to do with the rods and cones in the eye. Regardless its bad news.

This is a very rare accident. I've varmint and coonhunted at night all my life and have never even come close to shooting another person or wrong type of animal. I have only heard of one other example of this type of accident (under legal circumstances) in my life.

I find it almost as disturbing that some folks in the deer hunting thread are using this isolated incident as an excuse to bash all forms of night hunting.

Every cartridge ever made has left the factory with at least one flaw. Once the bullet leaves, it can never come back. That's why hunters have to be sure of their target and what is beyond before taking a shot. Even when hunting at night. Taking the time to verify the target may cost a coyote or two every now and then, but they can always be called in another day.
