Ada County Sheriff's spokeswoman Andrea Dearden told the Idaho Statesman that the first hunter was in Elmore County on Sunday when he rested his rifle on his foot while he climbed into his truck. Dearden says the rifle discharged, shooting the hunter in the toe.Well, that's not all they should do. They should follow the entire 4 Rules of Gun Safety. And failure to do so should be taken very seriously.
Later Sunday, three hunters near Atlanta were unloading their weapons when one of the guns discharged, the bullet hitting one of them in the ankle. The men were able to wave down Ada County Sheriff's deputies on Idaho Highway 21, and the man was taken to a hospital.
Dearden says hunters should remember to always treat their weapons as if they are loaded.
