Well this story just gets worse. It was reported today that while the dad was picked in the lottery for a license he never actualy bought that license. There has also been some rumblings if the guy had permission to be hunting where the accident occurred, this hasnt been confirmed as far as I know.  This guy had no reason at all to be in the field. My sympathy goes to the family but it just keeps getting harder and harder to give any kind of support to the father.

The last straw for the dad on this incident. As the investigation ends and more details come out it was reported that the dad had a BAC of .06 and had pot in his system also. hope they throw the book at this guy!

My feelings of sorrow for the father are getting slimer as this goes on. It is people like this that make things harder for the rest of us and makes it hard for anyone who likes to hunt. Road hunting, Trespassing onto privite property, Drinking before or during a hunt. The list goes on. As responsible hunters all of us needs to start policeing our ranks. Instead of turning our heads more of us needs to start reporting what wrongs we see. There are many groups out there that would love to ban the act of hunting in our country. Incidents like this one gives them the feul for the fire. Even if they throw the book at this guy it is not enough. A child lost his life for no reason except for the iresponsible acts of his father. People like this do not respect hunting and what it means. My Dad tought me to repect firearms and taought me how to be a responsible hunter before I even took my safety coarse. keep us posted RNC as to what happens.

what ever the particulers of the story are . my prayers go out to the responsible members of the family. and the little boy god be with his soul.As for father his life is over this will kill his spirit forever. two lives lost that day how sad is that.a little boy left alone in the spring turkey woods and a dad shooting at and unknown target.far for me to judge but a raised a young hunter and he never left my side until he was sixteen.even then i never lost site of him when you take kids into the woods you must put them above hunting

This week the dad in this matter was sentenced. He got 30 days in jail and 10 years probation. During probation he can not own, use or have in his possession a firearm of any kind.
