Hunter shot himself in SBNF near Pioneertown

Yup, safety first. I have been almost shot with a .22 semi-automatic rifle way back in 1973 by a classmate while rabbit hunting in Quartz Hill, Palmdale, Calif. before they built the Fwy. 14 and before there were any houses at all. A jackrabbit ran a circle around us and the classmate just kept firing with his 17 shot Marlin rifle with his rifle pumping bullets while following the rabbit circling around us. It was a miracle that myself and the 3rd man in our hunting party were not hit by any of those bullet spray. When I asked him why he was shooting even with such obvious danger, he replied that he was shooting at the ground. However the angle was very shallow with the bullets ricocheting off the desert floor. Whew!!! I thank the Good Lord I am still alive today. Another time back in 1988, while hunting chukar, I lost track of my partner while aiming at a low flying chukar to my left. At the shot, I was horrified because my partner was directly in line with the pellet spray. Luckily for us, he was about 200 yds. distant and there was no harm at all. Wingshooting is extremely dangerous. I can truly appreciate the hog guides insisting no bullets are chambered until the hunter is in position to shoot and only at the go signal of the guide. 'Nuff said.

I now have learned of this tragic accident! Another JHO'er had mentioned it after talking about a near fatla accident on Red Mt. opening weekend of chukar!
My deepest condolences to everyone concerned!
I could not ever phathom the severity of such a situation, I planted a pellet in a very good friend, I was sick for days afterward and will never forget it!
I've been peppered multiple times in my hunting life(35+yrs), and fortunately, never experienced any critical injuries or more!
This tragedy is something that could make one put up their guns for good, which I believe 22Ounce would never want, so for those that are close to him, keep that in mind, and when the pain of your loss has lessened, go out and hunt up a bird or two in his name!
God Bless his family and friends!
