The hunt for politeness drags on.
He (the shooter–ed.) said they were together when Christensen shot a bull elk. The pair separated to go look for the elk, however the older male saw another elk and shot at it, but hit his partner in the thickly wooded area.
Both men were wearing camouflage hunting gear at the time.
I have inspected myself. As far as I can tell, I for one have no “thickly wooded area.”
