Too many hunters

Postby Beaver » Thu Sep 26, 2013 8:43 pm

The woods are getting dangerous with all the hunters. Don't act like a squirrel or you could get shot.

"Authorities say a squirrel hunter was accidentally shot to death near Wausau when another hunter mistook him for a squirrel last weekend."

Wow. No wonder all those people have been shooting at me lately! It was starting to piss me off. If you wanted me to stop running around on your roof and rummaging in the gutters, you only had to ask.

The sheriff says Chang had two dead squirrels next to him on a stump, and his friend thought he saw movement and fired.


The height of stupidity.

First thing a hunter is taught is don't shoot if you can't clearly see the target. The guy is too ignorant to be hunting.

Yes, there's definitely something fishy about this incident — which is the case for most so-called hunting accidents, really.

Think before you shoot and be willing to wait.

So what kind of gun ban/regulation should be proposed in order to prevent this from happening again?

After all, a gun was involved...so something MUST be done about it, no?

I was just up in the UP last weekend, and our neighbor was down at the swamp hunting the beavers that flooded our road.

Oh wait, I'm sorry... :oops:

the humane society of the united states and the government of ontario have both put out brochures about driving a pipe through a beaver dam at a 20° angle to lower the water level.

Trust me, those buggers will figure out a way to stuff that pipe. No, we just kill the little fuckers. That'll fix 'em for flooding our road.
