UNBELIEVABLE. Father and daughter shot and killed during hunt in SC. Mistaken for deer during a drive.

That's not only unbelievable, but criminal. How ANYONE can make that mistake is beyond me. Don't they have a hunter education program there? Would that have even helped? There's plenty of incompetence in every walk of life, but when hunting with a deadly weapon you hold a special responsibility to identify your target and what lies beyond before ever considering to take a shot. No matter how harshly the legal system treats them, they can never replace the loss suffered.

I didn't see much of a write up on this but the article said that the father and daughter were inside a vehicle? My time in SC was between 1969 and 1975 in Charleston, I knew a few hunters and as far as I know there were no safety courses that I know of but safety was stressed in posters and media. I'd like to see a report on just how this could have happen.
