I read the original story on this incident a few years ago. The guy was definitely shot by his buddy. If my memory serves me correctly (and it's getting a little foggy at my elderly 38 years of age ), they were hunting in the same tree and the guy leaned in front of his buddy's bow. I'm trying to Google up the original story...Dean Weimer said:If that was shot from a bow, it would have went clean through his melon...Don't you think??? Maybe he fell onto it somehow. Either way, I have a splitting headache all of a sudden!!!
