- The most hunter un-friendly state
Don't make a whole lot of difference when your friend belly shoots you.That is sad news indeed. One of the problems that RI has is that many hunters are crowded onto state land. RI requires written permission for hunting on private land for deer. It has been my limited experience that it is very difficult to obtain. So the net result is that state land gets hammered. This is especially so in Southern RI.
True....You'll find this was a "driving deer, shooting buckshot into the brush without ID'ng you target" situation, though. 14,000 acres to roam around in and this happens without another person other than their party within hearing of the shot. Sad.That is true. Unfortunately this incident seems to mirror a situation a few years back when a man shot his son while deer hunting.
If I remember right, there were other mistakes made in that incident also. I think I remember hearing the son stripped off his orange to get through the brush better? Still not making sure of the target, but a string of errors that led to a death.That is true. Unfortunately this incident seems to mirror a situation a few years back when a man shot his son while deer hunting.
