Tragic shooting

This will give us hunters bad press. You must know what you are shooting before you pull the trigger. This should have never happen.

I've read three other stories similar to this and two mishap discharges in and out of stands and a guy who caught himself on fire in a tree stand and fell to his death. Crazy! Seems like a bad year of carelessness. Be careful out there and, be sure of your target! Some of this is just incomprehensible but sadly it happens.
I knew Ochoa, from my CPen days. He was a nice guy..

Good question how do you set yourself on fire in a treestand ??????
The guy caught himself on fire with a propane heater. I believe it was in Michigan. I dont have the article handy.
