While hunting in Wisconsin, a man was accidentally shot by a member of his family.

I've never been hunting but I have several friends who go all the time. When they talk about it, gun safety is mentioned quite a bit. Being careful is a big part of a successful experience.

I know they definitely want to avoid situations like this one.

According to nbcchicago.com,

"Authorities in Wisconsin say a man was accidentally shot while bird hunting with family members at a game farm. They were hunting together when one member set a shotgun down against some brush to tend to a dog. The shotgun fell over, causing the gun to fire. The safety was not engaged and the birdshot struck the victim."
