    RUSH, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been fatally shot by his friend’s son while squirrel hunting in woods near Rochester.
    The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says 71-year-old Vienchaleun Kettavong was hunting late Tuesday afternoon with his 58-year-old friend and the man’s 22-year-old son in a thickly-forested area in the town of Rush, 10 miles south of the city.
    Deputies say the younger man fired his rifle at what he believed to be a squirrel, and instead shot Kettavong. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
    It took several hours before Kettavong’s body could be removed from the scene because of the rugged terrain.
    No charges have been filed. Police say their investigation is continuing.

    You usually go squirrel hunting with a .22 so he must have shot him in the head or the heart. Didn't Richard's dad get shot while hunting in Kansas?

    The four rules of gun safety
    !. All guns are loaded
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT IS BEYOND IT.
    I don't think he paid attention in his hunters safety course.

    Back when I used to hunt, I preferred squirrel hunting over deer hunting because you can walk around in the woods rather than sit still.

    One of my pet peeves is when people end a sentence with the word, "so". I take it upon myself to finish the thought for them. In this case, I assume that you meant "soooooo you are the fucking master of the universe!"

    You also can wear those when hunting squirrel, but not deer.
