Homeowner calls on hunters to set their sights more carefully
HUNKER, Pa. —
A man is calling on hunters to stop being
reckless with where they shoot, after a stray bullet hit the side of
his house in Hunker.
Randy Page was shocked when he heard a
pop and saw a hole in the side of his house.
"I said, 'Hey,
that's a bullet,'" Page said.
Police officers removed a slug
from a 30/30 rifle from the wall. He believes it was fired by
hunters from a tree stand in a section of woods off Trout Road in
Hunker, and the bullet carried all the way to the wall of his
kitchen. Page said four or five people were home at the time, but no
one was hurt.
Page often and sees people in the deer stand,
but "They face the house when they hunt. They were sitting on chairs
up there, hunting facing the house, and you know, they got to
realize people live here," Page said.
