    Default Fatality

    Saw a news report that a hunter was shot and killed in Great Barrington ,Mass. yesterday. He was participating in a youth hunt. No other details , didn't say if it was mistaken i.d. or accidental discharge.

    Looks like he accidentally shot himself . The article claims he was handling the firearm when it went off.
    It happend at noontime . So I figure he was unloading the shotgun . Sad day .

    Sad situation, and one of the guys here on HC knew him. It sounds like he was an experienced hunter, active with the National Wild Turkey Federation in Massachusetts. Sobering reminder for all of us.
