SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) - Authorities in northern Wisconsin say a deer hunter who was killed this week was apparently shot when his hunting buddy fired at a deer and missed.

The Douglas County sheriff's department identified the victim as 27-year-old Garrett M. Carr of Oliver.

Authorities say Carr was hunting Monday with 31-year-old Michael F. Thompson of Superior. Warden Dave Zebro says a preliminary investigation suggests that Thompson fired at a deer but the bullet hit Carr in the head.

well that really just sucks for everyone involved, and feel bad for the families

BUT I guess it is a good reminder to all to watch where and what your shooting at, and what's behind it too!
A bullet can and do go pretty far
even after hitting a deer
heck even a .22 can travel over a mile, and most centerfire calibers can go over 7 miles
something to think about when shooting at things for sure!
