Tallahassee, FL (AP) - State wildlife officials say a Panhandle deer hunter made a bad mistake when he shot himself in the foot while standing on a tree limb.

Ronald Mills, 39, was able to climb off the tree and drive
himself to Tallahassee Regional Medical Center after the
Wednesday-morning accident in rural Leon county.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says Mills
was standing on the tree limb and resting his gun on his boot when
he accidentally discharged the rifle.

    One more example of the kind of gun control we need.... Not to control the guns, but the imbecile's who wield them. Oh and I am sick of seeing post's demeaning Wakulla. Yes it's podunk, half-backwards and some of the people may not be MENSA material, but if you don't like it STAY OUT and Ignore us. You sophisticated, acculturated people of the world from grand 'ole Tallahassee and it's "Big City" lights. HAH... It's the pot calling the kettle black.
