In a previous post, I labeled hunter Norman Clinton Hale our “Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day” for shooting a game warden and pilot with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. While this website hasn’t yet grown into itself (i.e. established its own commentariot), the two readers who posted after the article raised an interesting possibility: I screwed up. Kayhunter reminded us that, well, shit happens. “Please someone, tell me how at 11:00 at night, YOU can visually identify an animal at 100 – 200 yards – in the dark…. please – because I still haven’t mastered that.. and if one is supposed to completely identify their target – then why is it stressed that deer hunters wear orange to improve visibility to other hunters. – – – – – Sometimes guys – it’s a horrible accident – that everyone would have liked to prevent.” And then this, from Ben: “OK he was hunting coyote an u do this at night…..u hunt them by there eyes and the park ranger was wearing night vision goggles….i knew the hunter personally and he was a very responsible hunter and good man.” We’ll keep an eye on this story. Meanwhile, did I jump the gun?
