very odd that someone would be shooting so close to a vehicle with people near by. The guy should have checked his surroundings more closely when shooting. pellets dont travel that far. #1 rule when shooting was broken, know what is behind your intended target's range

I would like to see some more details on how this happened. I can see how this could occur if they were hunting with hounds since the hunters are frequently shooting at a running deer. The hunter should not have shot if he didnít know where his round would have hit if he missed the deer.

I'm very sorry that this happened. As a person who has lost a family member to a hunting accident, I feel for the family of Carrie L. Loving and Forrest D. Matthews Jr. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Without knowing the full story there is no way that anyone can fault the hunter. One pellet went astray. If she was anywhere in the very close vicinity of the deer that was killed, she would have been hit by more than one pellet. My thoughts and prayers are with Carrie's family and friends and also with Forrest.

honestly though, check your surroundings. the only fault could be the shooter, unless the lady wasn't wearing orange or was carrying a deer on her back. was the guy possibly intoxicated? he must feel terrible about the whole thing. sometimes our minds can play tricks on us, esecially woth buck fever. this sucks for everybody involved.
