Twisp hunting accident
« on: October 21, 2018, 03:29:52 PM »
My girlfriend and I came upon a panicked young man on Saturday morning who yelled that his father had been shot in the head by other hunters as he sped off in his truck to get help. We called 911 and left our information with LEOs when they showed up but didn't get involved past that as we didn't know what we would be walking in on or what the situation would be.

I was just curious if anyone had information or where i could go to get some closure for our own peace of mind.

Hoping for the best for the young hunter and his father.

Thanks.

Heard a few details from distant family member of victim. Shot in face with a 40 or 45 caliber pistol at about 50 feet. Was mistaken for a cougar is the story. Heard the man was going into surgery but was still alive and should survive.

This is not good.  I have friends who hunt up that way.  I sure hope the victim recovers.

How could you mistake a hunter/any human got a cougar? How can a human get shot in the HEAD by accident in any way!??
 :bash:  :bash:  :bash:  :bash:

Too drunk/high?

I canít think of any other reasonable explanation

Maybe dark out?  Some people are jumpy and scared of the dark.
