    This was pure stupidity, and charges should be brought.
    The views expressed above are the opinion of the poster and may or may not be total bunk.

    Rider or not, if you can't tell the differenc between a large deer and a small horse, you should not have a gun in your hands...period!

    And down here in south Mississippi we pretty much don't have "large" deer. It would be more realistic for someone to mistake a cottontail for one of our deer.

    I have a problem with these accidental shootings where some idiot hunter thought he was shooting a deer.

    If you can't identify what you're shooting as an actual deer, why the hell are you shooting at it?

    Whether one hunts with dogs or not, this clearly is a case of hunter staking a shot _without_ fully and thus positively identifying the target.

    Before making any shot what so ever one should THINK to _positively_ identify the target as from nose to tail!
    If you cannot do this then you quite simply do not take the shot. Period.

    Horse with rider




    Note the very much significant differences, and how the only similarity between the two is that they both have four legs and brown coloration.

    Clearly the hunter saw as through brush what appeared to be four legs and was brown in color, then took the shot at what he _guestimated_ to be the vital areas though as UNSEEN to him directly.
    That shot placed a bullet into the leg of the child riding the horse.
    Who the heck knows what this guy was thinking upon taking TWO shots at a SECOND also unconfirmed and unsighted target, which was also a horse and rider.

    Not to mention that this so called hunter had no clue about the specific nature of his game as related to species size...

    White-tailed Deer
    (Odocoileus virginianus)

    Size:

    * About 3 ft. (90 cm) high at the shoulder.
    * Weighs 150 to 225 lb. (68 to 102 kg).
    * Generally smaller than mule deer and bigger than black-tailed deer.

    Deer not even large deer come in the same or even similar size classification of a horse.
    As to those who might counter yeah but what about a pony, mule, or donkey...I would reply yeah but who hunts for deer as among areas where there are wild pony, mule or donkeys AND does so in brush to such a degree that they cannot positively identify the specific species of their target?!
    Never mind that said animal was clearly being ridden by a human being and very likely was wearing gear such as a saddle and bit, both of which are very much obvious to the naked eye.

    Incidents like this are very much avoidable, as by and is the responsibility of the person holding the gun!
