    Very few details as usual. I have seen several reports saying it was a hunting accident, one saying the victim was shot.

    Few details, but three agencies were called in to investigate so it could be a big mess.
    To speculate:
    1) person was not wearing orange and was shot.
    2) 1st person trips shoots 2nd person
    3) Couple poacher got in a fight...
    4) trespasser on quad hit tree/ditch
    5) what ever other wild ideas someone can come up with..

    Looks like we will have to wait for the details to come out.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    I think you would find that the OPP and MNR are jointly involved every time there's a hunting accident. No need to read more into this than that.

    From what the locals have to say about it it appears that there was a small group ot hunting in the Palmer Rapids to Hardwood Lake area and a man accidentally shot his nephew. The rest I have heard is pure gossip and bull squirt.
    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    That is true but the Renfrew County Crime Unit raises a flag.

    The problem some times is like this.
    You and I go hunting somewhere, and after a long day of hunting you slip getting out of the shower, and hurt your finger. When we take you to the doctor, the injury will be recorded as a hunting ACCIDENT simply because we are on a hunting trip.
    If you did the same thing the first night you got home it now goes in the records as a "SLIP AND FALL".

    You hurt yourself riding the quad while hunting it's a hunting accident, do the same thing driving around the back forty scouting and it's a vehicle accident.

    Not really. Any time you have a firearms fatality, the local OPP are going to call in specialists from further up the police food chain.

    This story is popular among hunters looking to discredit the games anti-hunters play with statistics, but it isn't true. In fact, statistics of hunting accidents are coded as to the type and cause of the accident. For each incident, we know not only whether it was a shooting, but also whether the shooting arose from misidentifying the target, careless gun handling, etc.

    It's not relevant here, anyway. The victim was shot, according to Cool 101 radio, in Belleville.

    None of this kind of speculation does us any good. It just stokes up rumours. Like oaknut said.

    Edited to add: identity of the victim has been released. David Hass, age 37.

    I agree Andrew it does stir up speculation and rumours. My father in law passed away at the hunt camp this passed spring due to an accident. Everyone was involved like you said and he was found some days later. I'm glad it never got on this forum because the false rumours that would have been spread around would of been devasting to my wifes family. We heard enough of it through other sources such as facebook and newspapers. Let the OPP and MNR do the job they are trained to do.
