Literally Adding Insult To Injury

From behind the paywall at Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
A 55-year-old Dane County man is in the hospital after his friend mistook him for a turkey and shot him in the face with a shotgun Sunday morning.

Preliminary investigation shows the 55-year-old, who is from Deforest north of Madison, and his 56-year-old friend from Sun Prairie were hunting turkeys at the Kendall Lake Public Hunting Property on state Highway 80 east of Muscoda around 6:30 a.m. Sunday, the Iowa County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

The 56-year-old moved from where he had been sitting when he heard what he thought was a turkey behind him. He told deputies he "thought he saw a turkey and fired his shotgun not knowing his friend had also moved his position."

The shot struck the 55-year-old with several pellets in his head, face and neck, the news release said. The injuries didn't appear to be life-threatening, but the man was taken to the Richland Center Hospital by Muscoda emergency personnel.
Imagine, getting shot in the face by your buddy, and then getting told you're a turkey on top of it.

The report does not mention if Dick Cheney was in the area.

And on a more serious note, remember, these are the idiots that Walker and company said can now walk around with guns all the time! Feel safer yet?
