Woman mistaken for hog, shot by boyfriend in hunting accident
http://www.wokv.com/ ^ | April 23, 2012 | WOKV News Team

Posted on 04/23/2012 12:07:51 PM PDT by BO Stinkss

A woman is shot in both of her legs by her boyfriend in a bizarre hunting accident. Police say he was trying to shoot a hog.

52 year-old Lisa Simmons of Brandon was shot Saturday night in western Flagler County. She's in serious condition at Halifax Medical Center after undergoing surgery.

Police say 52 year-old Steve Egan thought he was shooting at a hog outside the couple's tent. Police say Egan thought he hit the animal but was unable to locate it when he left the tent.

When he heard a noise in the woods, Egan shot at what he thought was the hog.

Instead, Simmons was struck with the .30 caliber rifle bullet, traveling through both of her upper legs.

He may be forgiven for shooting her. But she will never forgive him for saying he thought she was a hog.

Was alcohol involved?

If not, how did he mistake her for a hog?

Or Foxworthy:
You may be a redneck if you were ever mistaken for a hog.

Nobody carries a gun when they hunt around here for hogs. They use dogs and kill them with knives. They have an unwritten rule that no one carries when they are hunting the hogs either because someone will miss and hit a dog or person in the excitement of the hunt. There are a few stand hunters but most hunt with dogs.

And she told her boyfriend, “Oh, no worries... next week, we’re going out boating on the bay, I’m bringing my 12-gauge and it’ll be my turn to mistake you for a mallard.”

How awful on several levels. Sleeping in a tent in the woods, needs to take a pee and gets shot, that’s awful. Then to make matters worse you become a laughing stock because your stupid boyfriend tells the reporter he though you were a hog.

She should have shaved those legs.

Note to hog hunter: Use dogs to hunt hogs, not wifes. I think it’s illegal to bait them anyway.

I’m tempted to joke about it but when I think of the wound itself... .30 caliber bullet through both upper legs... wow... poor woman.

My guess: Mr. Steve Egan was higher than a space shuttle - probably on a combination of booze and meth - when he started shooting.

In further developments she shot him back, and was quoted as saying, “sorry, for awhile there I mistook him for a man!”

Bill Clinton was out jogging with his government financed security detail when he came upon a DC streetwalker. As you would expect, he stopped to proposition her. Even using his status as POTUS, he was unable to get her price down to $20, so they did not ‘get together’.

Later that evening, Bill was escorting Hillary to an exclusive formal event and chanced upon the same streetwalker. She gave Hillary a quick look-over and quipped, “See what you get for $20?”

Do ‘hog hunters’ shoot at their prey from inside their own tent?

Seems like it would be an ‘expensive’ sport. Tents don’t come cheap.

Up in Duval County where I’m originally from they run dogs and then walk up and shoot them with a .45 ACP or a .50 cal. so as not to hit a dog. No rifles.
