florida hunting accident, be careful out there

Local Teen Killed While Hunting

A 13-year-old Bay County teenager, whose identity is being withheld at this time, was killed Sunday morning when he was accidentally shot in the shoulder by a 10-year-old friend.

The boy and his father were hunting near Rattlesnake Lake Recreation Area in southern Washington County. They were hunting with a larger group when they wounded a deer

They followed the deer into the woods when the teenager was shot when he accidentally stepped into the line of fire from the 10-year-old boy’s gun. He died at a Panama City hospital.

Lt. Stan Kirkland says it’s a tragic accident, which could have been prevented.

The state of Florida requires anyone 16 years of age or older to complete a hunter safety course. Neither of the boys was of age. It hasn’t been confirmed whether they actually took the course.

It’s the second area hunting accident since hunting season began Thanksgiving Day. On Saturday two men were wounded while hunting quail in Calhoun County

same thing happened to a 12 year old boy in NC. He was with a friend and the friends father. They shot a deer, and told the boy to take the jackets & guns back to the truck. Someone was a little too excited and didnt put the safet on. On the way to the truck the boy somehow pulled the trigger & shot himself in the stomach.......
