We recently brought you the story about a hunter shooting his two buddies who were hiding behind a tail fan, and now here’s another reminder to be safe in the turkey woods.
In this amazing video, three people are set up in a natural ground blind. Two have shotguns, and one is running a camera. Then, a shot rings out from behind the hunters. If you replay the video (hit pause and play as fast as you can), you can actually see the shotgun muzzle blast. Look at the wood edge, just to the left of hunter’s head (the man who is shot). Crazy!
It appears that the man is hit on the upper leg. Hopefully the wound isn’t severe.
If you watch close, you can see a turkey fan folded behind the man as he rolls out of the video frame. Perhaps the shooter saw the fan and mistook the movement in the blind as a gobbler?
If we learn more about this near-tragic event, we’ll be sure to let you know.
We’ve said it before and we’ll SCREAM it again – BE SAFE OUT THERE!
