First off I do wear my orange outfit when I am supposed to

But say I go bowhunting during a firearm season and fail to wear my orange outfit and take a slug to the foot

Is it my fault or the shooters?

What say you

Both of you are at fault. You not wearing orange as you are suppose to and the shooter for not identifying his target.

Hope your foot gets better.:D

The shooter is always responsible for identifying the target (and ultimately where the bullet goes) , not the other way around.

That's what my old man drummed into my head.:cheers:

That & know what lies beyond your target where the bullet will land.

What the difference if someone is just wondering around the woods shooting stumps or whatever with a bow for fun and are not wearing orange??? Who is at fault then?

The shooter is at fault. What if the person that got shot would have been picking up pecans and not required to wear orange, would the' both 'answer still be said?

I still say both. If you are out just wondering through the woods during a rifle season, you should be wearing orange anyway.

I'm not willing to bet my life on pecans. May not be my fault, but it is my responsibility if I want to live.:02:

I almost wrote the story along these lines but did not want the poll to sound "one sided":cheers:

Thanks for all the responses:cheers:

If someone shoots at a deer an misses and then there stray bullet hits you, I dont believe they would be at fault as long as they didnt know you were there.
