Dog shoots hunter

I guess a it takes a dog to show gun safety. Place the gun on safe at all times - it only takes one dog wink.gif

Don't assume he didn't have the safety on. My shotgun has the safety right next to the trigger. It would be easy for a dog to step on both at the same time. The real warning here is to control the direction your gun is pointing at all times.

Good thing that dog wasnt in Minnesota, they'd convict him of attempted murder.

it's been a while since hunter safety, but i believe the proper gun saftey practice when crossing a fence is to open the action on your gun ensuring that there is no shell chambered. kinda a pain in the butt, but better than a hole in the leg tongue.gif

I would agree that one should unloaded his gun and not just lay it on the ground loaded. he could have tripped himself and fired the gun. These type accidents can all be avoided if one would follow all the safety rules taught when younger or have just used a little more commen sense.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
