Kinda of a stupid thing to do. White shoot?

Too hard to wait and actually see the elk?

Guy, that did the shooting doesn't read like a newby to hunting. But dang didn't identify target before shooting (Knucklehead).

I only want to be known as:

A great husband, a good trapper, and a great steward of the land.

Key words..."He took a shot at what he thought was an Elk".

Just can't justify that action.

I member a gal back east getting shot for a whitetail cuz she had white mittens on. City folks only get out once a year! I've caught shotgun pellets from city quail hunters.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

We write this off as just shooting at sound or movement but there are some studies that show one can "see" what one has built themselves up to see.

Still no excuse whatsoever, but it sounds like the details point towards the two calling and responding to the other in ways each would expect to see.

Morosko is currently charged with criminally negligent homicide


As he should be. The fool was old enough to know better. I wonder how many other hunters he shot at in PA.


Eh...wot?

In some states they shoot as sounds and movement, it's common from what I hear. It's really bad in the forested areas of Minnesota as well. Seriously dangerous stuff.

Short answer: No

Long answer:

The archery hunter who was shot by a muzzleloader hunter wasn’t required to wear the 500 square inches of orange that the muzzleloader hunter was required to wear. The Colorado seasons overlap and you only have to wear orange during a firearms season if you are hunting with a firearm.


You don't rise to the occasion, you fall to the level of your training.

In Ky IF you archery hunt during a firearm season you have to wear the blaze orange vest and hat. Why should half the hunters have an orange vest on and the other half not ? It says a lot for western game laws lacking common sense. Bull calling hunter calling in another hunter.

Yep..Something strange about the story is the "10" hour search party. When the guy fired the muzzle loader he had to be fairly close to the target he thought was a elk..So he runs up to the elk and then realizes he shot a bow hunter..So what does the guy do? does he run off? and the search party follows a blood trail and catches up with the shot bow hunter 10 hours later. I don't get the long duration of the search party's time frame..Most of all these hunters carry two radios anymore I hear the crackle of the radios myself in deep still canyons..Anyways sounds like the guy suffered a slow death..I wasn't there so I don't know how it went down after the muzzle loader shot..makes me sick

The bottom line is that anyone needs to identify their target prior to pulling the trigger. He should not only be charged with criminally negligent homicide but also convicted. The hunter orange requirement just gives the jury an excuse to not convict. There is no excuse for what happened.

Georgia is pretty much the same. If a gun season for deer is in then orange must be worn by all, at all times, if hunting deer, bear or hogs.
Does not apply if small game hunting on private land or if archery hunting on archery only WMAs.

Wow, sad story.

Not the first, and even sadder probably won't be the last.

^^^ this is what I was wondering too. Why 10 hrs to find the victim? Did the shooter not know he shot a person. Some missing details in that story.
