In the 9/22/05 issue of The Citizens’ Voice, Stan Sowa, Outdoor
writer, cited the case of the hunter who killed six other hunters in
Wisconsin because they threatened him for trespassing. He suggests that
hunters use caution in the woods.
The author also describes hunters, armed men, becoming
confrontational and pointing their weapons at other individuals. C.A.S.H.
also has recently heard of a hiker who was confronted at gunpoint by
hunters who actually shot at her! She was wearing blaze orange as she
hiked in the woods. She said that she made noise because she wanted them
to know she was there so they wouldn’t shoot. They knew she was there –
but they didn’t like it and they shot anyway!!!!
