There has to be some accountability for this stupid mistake. Sorry, it can't go completely unpunished.

One of my wifes friends lost her father the same way. He was dying from cancer and wanted to enjoy some turkey hunting while he still could get into the woods. A trespasser (poacher) on the property saw some movement and shot into the brush hitting him with buckshot.

They all say he died doing what he loved (minus the being shot) and the guy was caught and brought up on manslaughter, trespassing and whatever else.

Really makes you think, I hope to take my 5 yr old son with me some for turkey and deer.

What ever happened to actually, "seeing a visable beard" and "identifying that it is indeed a Gobbler", before pulling the trigger????? I can't fathom someone actually doing something like this. No excuse, plain and simple. That person goes to jail for 25 years to life!! It was an accident???? BS!!!

It's like the driver who pulls out in front of a motorcyclist, then claims he didn't "see" him?????

No excuses for stupidity.....

When will people learn to wait until they SEE their target before they shoot??? Shooting at movement is just plain and simply stupid -
Absolutely. I mean you should be aiming at a specific spot on a turkey (head/neck). If you can't even see the object well enough to tell it's a human and not a turkey then just exactly what part of the animal did you think you were aiming at? I have no sympathy for bush shooting idiots. Rather than treating events like this as some random sad accident they should at the very least be charging these dangerous goobers with something like reckless endangerment if their victim survives and negligent homicide if they don't.

Not only is this tragic, sad, stupid, and irresponsible. But it just gives more ammo to the people that are trying to take our guns away. Anti-hunting people eat this stuff up.
