Of course it was purposeful! Hunters rarely shoot each other or anything else on accident. For every accident you hear about there are tens of thousands of hunters that go afield safely and ethically. I am about sick to death of all the ill-informed comments regarding hunters and hunting that have been on the forum recently. The facts don't support these opinions.
