Sorry this is completely off topic but...
Have you heard about the harshbarger shooting that took place here in Newfoundland a few years ago? The couple were from the States, in NL on a hunting trip. Mrs. Harshbarger was a professional marksmen, could shoot a 6" group at 1000yds. But at 60yds she mistaken her husband for a bear and shot him. During the trial when asked why she didn't move when she heard him screaming she said her feet were tired and blistered from walking most of the day.
