    There was a ton of daylight between the hunter and the bird. I wouldn't have taken issue with someone shooting that bird over me... other than it should have been my bird.

    Note to self, don't hunt with Mill Creek.......... LOL

    I see your point Mill Creek, but that's why I thought is was more funny than dangerous. I still would not have taken that shot, but to each their own.

    Camera angles can be pretty deceiving. But it sure looks like the bird was between the 2 guys & in my opinion, neither should've even mounted his gun until the bird had passed. Yes, both guns were obviously angled upward (not a very high bird though) & maybe a little to the side. But I've been hit by stray pellets from shots that I'm pretty sure were "safer" than the one in this pic. All it takes is that 1 pellet that for whatever reason decides to not fly straight. Sure, what are the odds? It happens. No thanks.
