On Saturday afternoon, Nevis resident Adam Poole was killed in a duck hunting accident on Crow Wing Lakes when his hunting partner lost his balance in their boat and accidentally shot Poole in the head with a shotgun.

A search of Poole's public Facebook profile reveals he shared the photo at the top of this post on his Facebook page earlier this year, along with many other pro-firearm images. His dog is apparently named "Trigger."

According to his profile, Poole was 23 and was recently married. Authorities are treating his death as an accident and over the weekend released a statement encouraging hunters to be especially careful when toting guns in boats.
