  1. This was the first news story I read this morning and I am heartsick. My prayers are with all family members and sincere thanks to all first responders…….Also, I come from a long line of deer hunters and to all who hunt including my own family…You CAN’T be too careful out there!

  2. That person wasnt careful at all. How stupid. This is not an “accident” its negligence. Shooting at sounds? Come on, stop sugar coating things and tell it like it is.

  3. What ever the circumstances, I’m sorry. Please, for the family, find peace. This is trajic to all involved. A heart breaking conclusion. Please bring peace to this boy.
