A Florida man is undoubtedly spending a few nights on the couch after accidentally shooting his girlfriend once in each leg during a hunting trip.

Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies say 52-year-old Steven Egan was hog hunting Saturday night with   girlfriend Lisa Simmons  at a hunting camp off a rural county road in Flagler,  in the northern part of the state.

Around 7:30 p.m., officials said, Egan shot at a hog and then left Simmons behind in the tent to go look for it.  When he heard a noise in the woods he fired his gun again, thinking it was the animal.

Unbeknown to Egan, Simmons had also left the tent to pick up loose oranges that had fallen from trees on the property.  Instead of hitting his wild target, Egan struck his girlfriend in both legs with a .30-caliber bullet.

Simmons is in serious condition, but the police have decided not to charge Egan, noting his remorse and believing that the shooting was an accident.

This scenario could have gone better in so many different ways, say if this man had taken the time to be sure of what he was shooting instead of letting shots off based on hearing instead of seeing something to shoot at. She or anyone else could have been killed by his random and thoughtless actions (although the shots weren’t so random because he did hit her twice, right?). It would also be not-so-bad had he been hunting deer or pheasants or anything but hogs. “Sorry baby, I thought you were a wild hog,” just sounds bad.

    Who is Dick Cheney? Remember George W. Bush- Cheney was his vice president.
    Six years ago- when Bush was still in office, Cheney went on a hunting trip with lawyer friend of his. Cheney “accidentally” shot that friend of his in the face, neck, and back with birdshot pellets when he turned around to shoot at a bird on a ranch in Texas.

    lmao. this is true!

  • Em.

    She better get on her good foot and leave.

    In case you need to shoot someone in Florida: “I thought she/he was a wild animal” or claim self defense.

    Uh, no- I remember that when it actually happened a few years back. Unfortunately, your lack of punctation is what caused me to read it wrong.
