    Go back and reread the original post and it is pretty easy to say that any jerk with enough money to buy a gun can call himself a "hunter" and go out in the woods and start shooting things. I live near a hospital that is one of the most famous spinal cord injury rehab hospitals and they get hunters in there every year that sometimes wind up permanently paralyzed from getting shot in the spine or head. They come from all over the country.

    I was in the military and law enforcement and was trained extensively on gun safety. When I talk with some of these hunters or look at the way they carry themselves while they have a weapon in their possesion, it is pretty obvious that many of them don't have a clue about how to handle a gun safely. As I said, all they need is a credit card and a gun store and they are good go.

    it happens more often than you think. Why do you think some states have orange blazer vest laws?

    Sure, even when most accidental shootings durning hunting seasons have nothing to do with shooting at anything that moves, it has more to do with unsafe handling. Keeping loaded guns in vehicles, not crossing fences properly and shooting someone in the hunting party, falling out of treestands, shooting themselves going up treestands, etc. RARELY is someone shot because of mistaken ID or shooting at anything that moves.

    I feel bad for the dog i hope he recovers. It was easily avoidable, and I don't really care for people to jump on hunting for something like this.

    It's called common sense... A lot of states lack it.


    it is sad that the dog was shot, hope he recovers well!

    I think it is equally inconsiderate to allow dogs to run loose. I'm in a semi-rural area, and our town keeps a pretty tight reign on things. I can imagine how crappy it would be out in the really rural areas. Our friend hit a dog on a rural road, and the owners swarmed out and attacked his vehicle as if it was his fault that the dog was in the road. If that dog had run out into somebody's farm, he could have been shot as well. There is just no justification to allowing dogs to roam.

    To clarify, I don't agree with shooting a dog for no reason. But I'm also not a hunter. I have no idea how frustrating it would be to be waiting in a tree stand or actively stalking your prey, only to have a dog run out and screw the whole thing up. But I do know that I love venison. Yum.

    it's not that those are exit wounds - its that the damage was done long before this dog came to the vet -these are OLD wounds, and infection has set in.

    Obviously a responsible owner. Lets the dog run loose and then fails to take it to a vet. Everybody can hate me for this, but I feel like there should be an equal or greater amount of venom towards the owner. It isn't just on the hunter.

    no those are exit wounds...though filthy and infected, they are exit wounds. The bullet went in on the flank and blew out the front of his thigh. Bullets break down and fragment on impact, which is why there's two larg wounds...the bullet likely hit his hip, splintered, and exited in two spots. I've seen similar stuff while hunting.

    This was a really horrible shot, done by what I'm going to guess is a 22-250 or .220 Swift. Very high velocity, very low bullet weight and density. Anything bigger, like a .243 or .270 or any 30 cal weapon (NATO 7.62mm), would have taken the reg off. In the high velocity weapon department, once you get bigger than a 22-250, you're looking at tremendous power and I've seen glancing blows do far, far more damage. At that angle it looks like shear stroke of luck that the bullet didn't enter his rib cage, and that he wasnt eviscerated.

    What pisses me off is that the shot was horrible. If you can't kill what you're shooting at, you likely shouldn't be shooting at living things.
