3 or 4 days ago,,, 3 kids ( 28---30 yr olds) ------- hog hunting at night,thermal scope, at 150 yrds one shoots the other with AR-10--------- kid is in S&W hospital in Temple with a hole the size of your fist in his liver. I' ve never looked thru a thermal scope before, but I guess the image is not totally clear.

There is very little that looks similar between a human and a hog in a thermal scope. The only similarities are a heat signature. This can not at all he blamed on the scope or the fact they were night hunting, this “accident” was derelict hunters...nothing more nothing less.

I'm just guessing since they didn't say how it happened but I suspect they were set up like many of the youtube videos and lined up facing the hogs. Hog runs parallel and crossed across the line with one of the hunters following it in the scope.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

Terrible...
My brother has a lower end thermal scope, even at 150 you should be able to tell a Hog from a Human.

I hunt at night a lot. I would never hunt the same property at night with other folks and be 150 yards from each other. We would either hunt together or I would leave.

Never heard of 28 and 30 year old kids. Sorry for what happened. Get well soon.

Not the way to hunt hogs at night...

Quote
They said they were hog hunting together and decided to separate, and the 25-year-old man who was shot walked along the creek.

All individuals lost contact with each other and there was a misunderstanding where each were, the release said.

One of the relatives spotted hogs running toward the creek and fired, striking the man, officials said.

Dang, I hate to hear stories of injured hunters. Guys out having a good time, and then suddenly, tragedy worse than is imaginable.
Prayers for the injured hunter.

These weren’t kids and I suspect we will find out that a female is somehow involved in this story.

Funny you mention that, I lost a good friend in a hunting scenario similar to this. He died and the other guy went to jail.

I doubt there was some conspiracy. Likely just inexperienced folks who don't know how to safely hunt at night.

Something along the lines of the guy who was shot having a good life insurance policy and his wife was cheating on him with his hunting buddy?

It's being discussed on the internet so there has to be a conspiracy theory. They were all relatives of each other. SMDH.
