This is why some people don't need to own a gun. Give them a sling shot to hunt with.

I'm not sure how his hand ended up in front of the barrel, especially with a shotgun.

He must love that dog, for he stated the dog was not at fault.. So he is a true dog lover... Shame he lost his hand in that way... Poor guy..

It was a hunting accident. Hell people go to sleep and fall out of their deer stands. The guy should have gone to a Hunter Safety Class. Loaded gun with safety off not a smart thing to do. Sorry for the lost of a hand. Sorry for the dog.

I didn't think anyone saw me fall out of the tree stand, where were you hiding?  Boy I really feel stupid now...

What could possibly go wrong?

Yes, it's good that he doesn't blame the dog.

However,  Being out in the wild hunting animals is inherently dangerous. While I don't applaud the harming of anyone, killing for sport is, in my personal opinion, tempting a negative outcome. You know, rather like: He that lives by the sword dies by the sword. Just my personal opinion.

You don't know if he was killing for sport. He might have been shooting rabbits or upland birds and eating them.

Those of you talking about karma should take a look at your own comments in that regard.

This is a human being who was maimed.

I'm glad the dog didn't get hurt. Guns are not for the stupid.

Beautiful Basset Hound, I am glad that the dog wasn't hurt. As A hunter and target shooter   i also have to ask how / why was his hand covering or in front of the barrel of the shotgun.
  one of the first five or six things i was taught about hunting and guns . when hunting always lay the gun on a flat surface, never lean the gun against anything, if it falls it may fire and who knows where the bullet may go.  that comes right after keep the safety on until your ready to pull the trigger,
