perhaps a hunter coming home from the weekend unloading his car?
Whatever the case, one thing is for sure...more guns in more people's hands will fix this and every problem we have.

how can the headline be: "Man reportedly shooting rifle at cars"

when later in the article it reads:

"No drivers have reported that they were shot at, Wylie said."

Orange puffy vest- Well at least he wasn't trying to camouflage himself. I hope this is all a misunderstanding.

Might this not simply have been a city surveyor, carrying his tripod and optical gear, and wearing his safety vest?

Probably an umbrella instead of a rifle. Eye witnesses are notoriusly unreliable.

Aren't hunters required to register? Why don't the cops just pay a visit to everyone on the registry? They should think about putting some cameras up around the hunting zone in case more serious accidents happen.
