The hunt for politeness continues.
Troopers say Kristopher Paro was in a tree stand in the woods behind his home in the Oswego County town of Sandy Creek around 4:40 p.m. Thursday when he heard what he thought was a deer about 100 yards away.
Police say Paro fired a shot, unaware that his father, 58-year-old Kevin Paro, had gone into the woods a short time earlier to hunt. Troopers say the father was hit in the chest by a round from his son’s .270-caliber rifle.
Many years ago, when my brother lived in Vermont, his old boss overheard a conversation between two out-of-state hunters.
One said, “Did to see anything?”
The other answered, “No, but I got off a couple of sound shots.”
His boss gave up hunting at that moment.
In case you are wondering, this was a “sound shot.”
