    Wildlife office shoots two bt accident

    "2 hunters accidentally shot by Tennessee wildlife officer while turkey hunting"
    Never good to see this and when it is an off duty Wildlife officer even more concerning.
    "The unnamed officer was hunting in the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area in Campbell County when he shot the two other hunters by mistake, The Associated Press reported."

    Most definitely a scenario of shooting at an unidentified target.
    Cooper would be pissed...

    DON'T SHOOT AT SH!T YOU CAN'T SEE!!!

    Thankfully both men are fine. The officer should be charged. Negligence is negligence, and he caused injury.

    Lucky the hero is still alive. Cause I darn well plan to return fire at whoever shoots me, in self defense of course.

    How do mistake 2 people for a turkey?? Unless your just shooting what is moving out of shear stupidity.

    I wonder if the wildlife officer could find his a$$ with both hands and a map? A wildlife officer that can not identify an actual Turkey. And I bet he is armed on duty too. This moron should never be allowed to carry a firearm. This is Affirmative action gone wild.

    I was hit by pellets one time... there was NO way the shooter could see me.
    My grandfather was shot in the face and lost an eye.... during bird hunting a shooter fired at a bird coming up out of tall grass... hunter did not know my grandfather was there.
    I am for investigating but from reading the article we do not know what happened.. I could layout 10 different ways it could have happened where the shooter would not be responsible.

    you must have read a different story then i did.. I could not tell what happened at all... yet in your story the officeholder fired at people thinking they were turkeys.. I did not read that

    I did gather that they must have been at a distance where they were not killed by the shot and 2 of them were hit..

    could he have been shooting at a turkey and they were in a blind unseen?

    Ahem...
    RULE 1
    ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED
    The only exception to this occurs when one has a weapon in his hands and he has personally unloaded it for checking. As soon as he puts it down, Rule 1 applies again.
    RULE 2
    NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO DESTROY
    You may not wish to destroy it, but you must be clear in your mind that you are quite ready to if you let that muzzle cover the target. To allow a firearm to point at another human being is a deadly threat, and should always be treated as such.
    RULE 3
    KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER TIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET
    This we call the Golden Rule because its violation is responsible for about 80 percent of the firearms disasters we read about.
    RULE 4
    BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET
    You never shoot at anything until you have positively identified it. You never fire at a shadow, or a sound, or a suspected presence. You shoot only when you know absolutely what you are shooting at and what is beyond it.
    Your scenarios would be irrelevant.
    Negligence is negligence, and he caused injury.
    The shooter is responsible for EVERY SINGLE PELLET FIRED, AND EVERYTHING THEY HIT.
    Period.
