Authorities say 39-year-old Bruce Ellyson was hunting with some friends east of the Clearwater Campground in the Shoshone National Forest on Sunday when the accident occurred.
The Park County Sheriff's Office says Ellyson and his companions had just finished their hunt and were preparing to leave when a rifle leaning against a vehicle fell over and fired.
Ellyson was taken to St. Vincent's Hospital in Billings, Mont., where he died from his injuries.

  1. Yet another dropped gun goes off and this time kills someone. Was it a 1776 musket? Maybe it was SS's finger trigger syndrome? But it was leaning against another object and no human was near it. Maybe it was a ghost and an evil spirit at that. The gun loons tell us it can't possibly go off by itself.
