Default A hard lesson to learn....

I don't have all the details. I understand that the police are still investigating the incident....

Last week a young hunter was accidently shot and killed while out hunting with some mates. Now a hunter being shot and killed is almost unheard of here in OZ.
A spokesman stated that the young man was not wearing an article of blaze orange clothing, but his mates were. It is not complusary to wear blaze orange in Victoria, the state where the incident occurred, but it is here in New South Wales when hunting on public land.
From my perspective, I had never worn any blaze orange before I got my R licence. Now I wear a blaze orange hat at all time when hunting, even on private land. As do all my hunting mates.
I know there are times when the blaze orange will not be seen, but really, for the sake of wearing an orange hat and most hunters will wear a hat anyway, why take the risk?

Please hunt safely!
