    God rest his soul. I hate to hear about young people dying before their time. This morning he was alive, and now he’s gone. Cherish your time here on Earth. Condolences to the family.

    It is sooo important that we start educating our kids beyond gun safety! My heart goes out to his family and Summer.

    This “Hunting” thing sure seems necessary. How many kids get to die every year so we can still behave like cave-people? Look how many kids were killed in the UK this year due to guns… like 0, but keep fighting for your boomsticks, primates. We couldn’t live w/o them.

      Hunting is a part of our heritage, and something I am teaching my 4 boys as well. In addition, without deer hunting, everybody you know would have hit several deer on the highway by now, and statistically, at least 2-3 people you know would be dead from it.

      Boomsticks indeed. Wake up, ignoramus.

        they’re called ‘controlled hunts’, handled by law officials, just like Europe, where children cannot shoot themselves in treestands. carry on your tradition, and too bad about slavery.

    I’ll bet his hillbilly old man is glad he taught him how to hunt. Hunting sucks. Go buy some meat at the grocery store.
