Happened Monday not far from me. Shot gun season, one hunter was hit in the hip by a member of his hunting party. One hunter shot twice at a deer. One shot ricocheted off a tree and struck his companion in the hip. He was life flighted to an Omaha Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No charges were filed. I for one do not want to be any where near timber during shotgun season with 1 oz hunks of lead flying around. A rifle bullet is a lot, lot less likely to ricochet and will likely break apart on impact with a tree.
