    i was at a party with a friend of the guy who got shot.. saw pictures of the wounds... crazy story..
    note this is 100% all second hand.. i have no idea if it's true.
    guy's paddling his kayay down the small river - he saw the deer hunter and announced his presence. unclear if the deer hunter acknowledged or not.. the guy heard the shot.. paddled further away. didn't know he was shot until he picked up is water bottle between his legs and the bottom was blown off of it. the slug went through the kayak - hit is leg - went through the water bottle- hit his other leg and then ended up being lodged in the opposite side of the kayak. he was stranded then when the kayak basically sunk / swamped.. the 911 people told him to stay put and he was there bleeding for over 30 minutes while help came to him as he coordinated the search with the operators on the phone.. he walked out. 2 flesh wounds. He saw the deer hunter running away after he yelled that he had been shot. I guess the guy turned himself in and has prior incidents of improper firearm discharge.. like hitting a house by accident while target shooting.
    Again.. all second hand info..

    I have always found that you don’t hit things by accident with firearms. Unless it’s decoys, everyone I’ve ever shot was an accident.

    I don't shoot my decoys too often but I have one decoy that has been pounded like 3 times. I swear there's a magnet inside of it the way it draws steel shot.

    I like the decoys that rattle. Kinda like a Rat-L-Trap but for ducks!

    He was probably calling the deer hunter gay.
    Duck hunters with shotguns shouldn't call deer hunters with rifles gay.:fp :dv
