Wow thatís just so dumb to have this happen. Stuff like this will be used against every 2A supporter and AR-15 user. Itís absolutely embarrassing as a hunter for me to hear stuff like this. Thanks for sharing Possumal. And then he shot him more than once!? Holy hell.

broke the first law before pulling the trigger - "know your target and what's beyond it". Always was concerned about the "sound" shooters. First Time ever hunting a guy shot his best friend. Shot at movement coming through the woods without knowing what it was he was shooting at. Geez - just can't fix STUPID! RIP Pastor!

Regardless of ones opinion on ARs and alike. This case should not be about that. First off the media only gives you very little info. But to past judgement is not my job, but my opinion based on the info given is this. The shooter did not identify his target(as a coyote)and pick his shot for placement. He just fired serval times at what sounded like a coyote. Therefore the shooter is in the wrong.

No doubt the shooter was wrong, but I think the hunter used poor judgment too. No way would I sit in a thick place with the ecaller playing right beside me. Safe placement of both the ecaller and any decoys used is common sense.
