Question: Right, and so you know all the procedures and how to maintain the proper line and distance between you and other hunters, and all that. So how, in your judgment, did this happen? Who — what caused this? What was the responsibility here?
Cheney: Well, ultimately, I’m the guy who pulled the trigger that fired the round that hit Harry. And you can talk about all of the other conditions that existed at the time, but that’s the bottom line. And there’s no — it was not Harry’s fault. You can’t blame anybody else. I’m the guy who pulled the trigger and shot my friend. And I say that is something I’ll never forget.
Thanks for saying it was your fault. I was hoping you’d do the right thing, like any good hunter would, and state roughly what you stated. Mistakes do happen, but the guy that pulls the trigger bears all of the responsibility.
