Photo from Matthew Lubben
A Buffalo, Minn. 14-year-old was killed in a hunting accident in Wealthwood Township, in southern Aitkin County, Saturday afternoon.

Go to wcco to see the story.http://wcco.com/video/?id=21640@wcco.dayport.com

how do you look through a scope & shoot a kid in the head wearing a blaze orange hat? It's second degree manslaughter & it carries a 10 year sentence.

CK,
I checked out the video, what a sad story. It's a real reminder on why we all need to be as careful and aware as possible at all times. Like they said in the video, how can you think a boy wearing all blaze orange is a deer, I don't get it!!!

It is always sad to hear of hunting accidents but when they involve KIDS that is even that much harder to accept....

Always need to know what is behind your target before pulling the trigger....

You said it Kevin,
My brother was shot & killed when I was 14 & he was 16 by his friend.Unloading a gun & it went off.hunting is a great pastime ,but it can be deadly if not taken serously.
As adults we not only need to teach safety but practice it as well.This is not a do as I say ,but not as I do kinda thing.

You hit the nail on the head CK...teaching by example is the best way to go. My father practiced and taught me firearms safety from such and early age that it became second nature. Whether it's used in a crime, war or sport, a gun is a gun and it's ultimately the user who's responsible.

I'm doing my best to do the same with my son. He's 12 now and rearing to get his first deer. This kind of tragedy scares the crap out of me. I guess what worries me is that no matter how well I teach him and how well he absorbs it, his safety (and mine) will always be partially dependent on other people in the woods.

My heart really goes out to the family of that boy.

More info in the News Tribune today....

"Prosecutor Lisa R. Rakotz said Ferguson admitted that he had been drinking alcohol Saturday, which was confirmed by a witness. The witness said Ferguson has had several drunken-driving convictions — state records show about five since 1993 — and that his driver’s license was conditional upon not drinking."



Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!

Has anything good ever come from the combination of alcohol and guns?

Why are people so freaking stupid?
