RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- On a turkey hunt, a man watched another hunter stalk some prey across an open field toward where he was waiting in ambush. To alert the approaching hunter, the man stood up, removed his mask and gloves, and moved from behind the tree where he was sitting. At this time the approaching hunter fired, shooting the man in the body. The victim fired two shots in the air and yelled, but the shooter ran away. Fortunately, the victim survived. With a new hunting season fast approaching, it's important to remember to identify your target before pulling the trigger and avoid ruffling any unintended feathers.
