    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I just heard on the radio that a turkey hunter in Ohio was putting out his decoy when a second hunter shot him in the head.&nbsp; He is expected to make it and injuries are not life threatening.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;In my opinion, there are No Excuses for this.&nbsp; It's not that hard to figure out what you are about to shoot at.&nbsp; </P>

    <P>Thats outrageous, they better put him in jail for a couple of years, or take his hunting lic. away for life. or both.&nbsp;&nbsp; I don't understand how that can happen.&nbsp;&nbsp; How can you put a good shot on a turkey's head and neck, if you can't see it clearly.&nbsp;&nbsp; The problem isn't using decoys,&nbsp; the problem is that there are a few bone heads out there that shouldn't even be out in the woods.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I like to here the bone heads excuse.&nbsp;&nbsp; </P>
