"The shooter, whom authorities declined to identify, was with three other people field-dressing a doe using the headlights of a pickup truck.

Someone then said they heard movement in the brush and could see eyes.

"The man stood up, loaded his weapon and fired," Adams said, adding that the single shot hit Mundt in the abdomen."

Dumb, dumb, dumb. Some people are too fucking stupid to be allowed out of the house... this guy is one of them.

You have to have lights on to see what you are doing and then you fire into the brush when you hear a noise? WTF was that guy thinking? Did he think a deer was sneaking up on him in the dark? Did he think he was scaring off a bear or something?

The shooter was his best friend - I'm sure he's wishing worse things upon himself right now then we care to imagine.

Life imprisonment is a bit harsh, but 5 years sounds about right. This clearly was not murder. Without pre-meditation it isn't murder. Neither was it a crime of passion where the individual knew they were shooting at a human being and intended to do so, but did not plan it. Instead this was a crime of pure negligence in which a human being was shot and killed. The basic facts are, they were out in a group of at least four people. All persons were not back to the group yet, thus there was still another guy out there. The sun was down and it was dark. CLoud cover made it darker still. There is no excuse for loading and firing a gun after dark. He only saw eyes and failed to identiy his target. With one more hunter in the group yet in the field, poor light, etc. taking a shot at eyes is just plain stupid. How many deer have you ever seen approaching an area with bright headlights and swamped with the smell of deer blood? The guy was criminally begligent, at least as bad as if he had commited vehicular manslaughter. Similar punishment should apply.

Fellow who was shot, was not wearing required blaze orange. Fellow who shot, shot well after the recognized close of hunting hours. Both were in the wrong, but one was more in the wrong.

I think 10-20 years in prison and a lifetime loss of hunting priveledges. He should not be eligable for parole for at least 10 years then go from there. What a terrible tragedy.
