Longblades that's terrifying! That's why I stopped deer hunting - I didn't want to die.
Too many nuts and people who don't know how far their shot/arrows go out there. To me, there's no excuse. If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it! Safeway sells BBQ chickens, no one's going to starve.
I was out duck hunting from a hay bale blind. We watched another group come onto the property and set up just across teh slough from us. I don't think they had any idea we were there. I stood up so they could see us, but they shot directly towards us anyway. Shot was, literally, falling on our heads. Needless to say, we left.
