How awful, My prayers are with all involved.
We as hunters can't stress safety enough. Be active...whether its working with a local hunter safety program or intervening with someones personal business if you know they allow youngsters to hunt alone. Heck if the neighborhood kids are mishandling BB guns get involved and be heard. No sense in letting bad habits form at early ages. Bad enough that movies and video games highlight shoot-outs which is different than a hunting accident but still shows our youth a fuzzy line when it comes to firearm safety.
Again My prayers are with all.

this is an awful event, but hunter education or not, where are the parents. In NH 11 year old cant hunt with an adult with them. maybe there should be that law where ever this happened. I am a fneral direct and my heart goes out to their families:(

Wow this is too bad. I had been told the first time i even picked up a BB to always ID what i was shooting at. I think this situation involves a lack of parental involvement. Sure, hunters safety could have helped. But if the parent was respsonible, they wouldnt let their kid be out with a couple of 5th graders deer hunting. There wasn't a whole lot i learned in hunters safety to tell the truth. my dad taught me all of it before i could deer and turkey hunt. his dad did the same. thats way i think our group has never had an accident. hunters safety has helped a ton, but therse just some things that hunters safety can't do, like babysit immature kids that should not be out in teh woods alone, much less with other younger kids.

I hope that that young man has a strong family and friend network. He's going to need all the support imaginable. I can't fathom carrying that weight around myself. Prayers are in order for the entire family.

I got a chill from just seeing the subject before I even read Todd's account. This is tragic and must be horrible on the family. My prayers are with them.

I'm not the "crying" type of guy but that article brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. That's a darn shame but bringing charges against these folks isn't going to do anything. Living with the tragedy is punishment enough :(

THat is sad, really sad. IMO kids shouldnt rifle hunt till they are 14.especially by themselves.

Sad. There are always what if's. Do you think he would have shot if a more seasoned hunter was there ? Even if something moves most guys I know make sure of what it is before they shoot. Someone should have been right next to that kid while he was hunting. Cant blame the child , he is going to have it rough knowing he killed his brother. My prayers go out to the family.
