Another fatal hunting accident....

Another fatal accident. So sad.

Be safe out there and practice proper gun safety at all times.

Sad news, especially when that is so preventable. That’s gun safety 101. Prayers and condolences for the mans family.

Prayers to the family. Sad as it was preventable. Always unload your weapon going up and down a tree. Last year a guy was accidentally killed by his crossbow in the same situation. So sad

You never think something like this is gonna happen. I was involved in mine accident investigations when I was still working. One thing I found was that seldom did an accident occur due to a single failure. Usually it was a combination of several things going wrong at the same time.

In this case, #1 gun was loaded while climbing in stand. #2 gun was dropped. #3 never let muzzle of gun point at anyone, even unloaded.

Thoughts and prayers to the family. At the same time there really is no excuse for this. When I take my climber with the rifle I donít load the gun until I have climbed up and I am settled in. Before I get down I unload . Itís really that simple. Under no circumstances should you ever climb up and down a tree with a loaded weapon.

I think this is now #6 for the year compared to 1 last year. Not a good direction to be going.
