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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
