Two older men. 70-ish decided to go beaver hunting about 2 months ago. They went to the river. One went on one side and the other went around to the other side.
One of them fell into the river and couldn’t swim. His friend on the other side heard the splash and not knowing it was his friend, started to shoot into the water.
Unfortunately for him and his friend, he shot him in the head and killed him.
So it brings me to question, should there be a limit as to what age you can use a gun?? Young people need to be a certain age and take hunters safety but what about older people who may have eye or hearing problems??
It was deemed an accident by the local RCMP but could they have avoided this horrible situation???
