HUNTER SHOOTS HORSE ON LANA'I

Post  muggs on Mon Sep 03, 2012 4:09 am

Was hunting mouflon on Lana'i this weekend and saw a sign on the DLNR office saying that someone shot and killed a horse that was in a pasture in part of the hunting area on 9/1. How screwed up is that!! Don't know if it was intentional or an accident but I'm betting that nobody is going to take responsibility for this.

Mad AUWE!! Another black eye for the hunting community. If anybody knows anything about this please step up and be a responsible hunter.

Man that is just a shame. I could see some possible larger safety zones coming for things like this. Hopefully someone saw something but now that it is already later in the week I doubt it. Just a needless trigger pull. #1 rule - Identify your target!!! I saw a horse in the hunting are during opening weekend but never even twitched to raise my rifle... WTF is wrong with people???

We seen that horse this weekend, it's on the east side of the Yamada trail. It didn't look like pasture land where it laid. As I recall several hunts ago there was a cow that was dead in the same area. I wonder if this is where ranch owners take their live stock to put them down?

ugh... lame. A friend of mine once accidentally shot a bull in a pasture. He struggled with what to do. Should he get out of there and try pretend it never happened and hope the landowner never finds the wounded bull? Or should he fess up to the landowner who gave him the pass and take responsibility?

Knowing he would probably loose his pass, he did what was right, called the landowner to tell him what happened, and said he would pay for the bull. The landowner apreciated the call, trust was build up, my friend paid for the bull, and he didn't loose permission after all. Moral of the story: it's always best to take the honest and responsible route. I hope whoever shot the horse did so as well. Otherwise everybody pays.

My dogs had grab one cow and pull off her ears. I was wondering what for do, and decided to call the land owner and tell him. I offered to pay for the cow. He told me that I was the first hunter for ever tell him the truth, and that most of the time everybody stay blaming each other their dogs grabbing his cows. Needless to say, I am still hunting anytime I like, and he gave me one key for his pastures. He also calls me to tell me where he sees the pigs....!
