Condolences to the young man's family and friends, totally devastating, and some thoughts also of the unfortunate shooter. One hell of a cross to bear for life, shooting a mate.  Sad   Seems like the young bloke was an exceptional hunter for his age. R. I. P. fellow hunter and forum member.

Still having trouble comprehending the loss of such a talented and hard working young hunter, he had achieved more in his youth than most of us could ever dream. RIP.
