An experienced hunter from Russia has died in a freak accident involving one of his own hunting dogs.
The victim, Sergey Terekhov, had been on a hunting trip with his cousin near his home in southern Russia when the unfortunate accident occurred.

"The weapon rested on his knee, with the butt facing down and the barrel pointing towards his stomach," a member of the regional investigative committee told the press.

When the hunting dogs were released from the car, one of them bounded over excitedly and inadvertently tapped the trigger of the gun, firing a shot directly in to his stomach.

Terekhov's cousin quickly phoned for an ambulance however he died on the way to the hospital.

"Everything was in order," the committee concluded. "This was an unfortunate incident."

Amen to that.  I grew up around rifles (rural area in upstate NY) and gun safety was pounded into my brain from a very young age.

Poor guy made a poor decision.   Seems an odd one for an experienced hunter to do. I wonder if he had the gun resting, barrel up, near him and the dog knocked it over and it went off.   I can't imagine anyone holding a shotgun with the barrel to your gut.

I think he already won, did he?

Didn't this also happen a few years ago? Pretty sure it was covered on this forum, too.

Dog accidentally shoots man? I dunno, it looks like a crime of passion to me.

Some older guns have their firing pin resting right on the bullet's primer instead of being blocked or set back. Old Rugers are like that. I watched a clown shoot himself off his own horse when he dropped his Ruger revolver on its hammer. That's why I always used saddle holsters and shoulder holsters instead of wearing it on my hip.

""The weapon rested on his knee, with the butt facing down and the barrel pointing towards his stomach,"" Great way to fake a murder, "The Dog Did it"..... OR Hunter accidentally killed himself and companion blamed it on the dog so he would not look silly.... Who knows, this is Russia....

Guns do discharge, accidently, but an experienced hunter holding a loaded weapon like that is a little hard to swallow.

That’s what I thought... I’ve never seen  (or even heard of) someone holding/ resting a gun in that manner. I find it especially suspicious as the article said he was an “experienced hunter”, holding a gun with the muzzle pointed at yourself is a rookie mistake to say the least.
