Always identify and know your target. Marsh was calling coyotes and dressed in camo in NC when a neighbor mistook him for one of the coyotes he heard calling. He shot at MOVEMENT! Don't do that.

I have never understood someone shooting at a movement or sound, when they cannot identify the target. It is crazy how often we here this same story.

It's no accident when someone intentionally pulls a trigger. IMO, it's nothing less than negligent homicide. Perhaps in this state the charge is involuntary manslaughter.

Accidents occur when a firearm discharges as a result of unintentional actions, such letting a firearm drop or come into contact with an object.

This is why I get the creepy willies when people talk of " brush shots". I have heard people over the years talk of "brush guns" and what would shoot through the brush. PLEASE DON'T DO THAT!!! Prayer for both families. It will be a loss all the way around.

The article didn't say, but was either person involved trespassing? Or was it public land? Assuming it wasn't public land, somebody was trespassing. If the hunter had a right to be there, the shooter must have trespassed. If the shooter didn't know somebody was on his place, the preacher was trespassing.

That needs to be cleared up before I make final judgement.

That being said, ALWAYS KNOW YOUR TARGET & what's behind it.

Yet another reason you shouldn't be hunting close to anyone else, while you may be a responsible hunter, that doesn't mean that everyone around you is.

I donít see how on earth with thermal someone could actually mistake a critter at shooting distance. Hell I can tell a deer from a hog 90% at 600 yards just by the way they move different from one another. This is most likely a lack of experience,excited in the moment, and pure lack of judgement. Never pull the trigger unless you know for a fact what you are shooting at.

Iím not sure but there have been 2 incidents Iíve heard of in the last 6 months of someone shooting a person while using thermal at night.

Who ever mistakes a human being for a legitimate target is either an untrained inexperienced child or a murderer. It is totally wrong and the punishment must be severe. As a young man and city boy hunting in Maine the locals would often make our visit less than comfortable when discussing the frequency of their sound shots. When it first occurred I asked my friend and host as to their sincerity and a wink to the eye was his response.

The shooter doesn't look like the kinda person that has thermal gear, more likely a meth lab in his bath tub. I'm betting he shot onto property that isn't his also.

I don't believe for one minute this was an 'accident'. This happened 20 minutes before sunset and multiple shots were fired.
