Hunter shoots pickup truck after mistaking it for a deer

Postby minnesotatv on Sun Nov 26, 2017 4:57 pm

An Ohio hunter was charged on Friday after he fired at a brown pickup truck
when he thought it was a deer in western New York — the second hunting incident
in the area within a week, authorities said.

The first incident was much worse. At least everyone is ok from this one. Crazy though. How does one mistake a truck for a deer?

I did have a family of 4 come under my stand on horse back without wearing any blaze orange one year on the opener. They were not in any danger from me of course however I did have words with the father later that night when I ran into them at the restaurant. At least put blaze on your kids

Well it is moving and I see no orange, so it has to be a deer......

That's the new fur coat I bought for my mother in law to keep her cozy comfy during those fall walks in the woods. Selling like hotcakes, I guess .........
