    LMAO, that fellow was a whole lot nicer than some would have been! Hunters certainly don't need any of that sort of help either. Hap

    He is the prototype of the behavior we try to teach young hunters in hunter education classes: "don't act like this!"

    He might have every right to be where he was, but if he's spraying shot on these people or their houses, he's 100% in the wrong.

    hunting incidents occur every day, gotta be happy that some people don't hunt big game with a centerfire rifle. It is interesting that Mr. Knight has a bit of a history of incidents.

    Real nice guy, that Knight. "Ask nicely". Who does he think he is? He should have said sorry but it was my friend and not me but we will move. If that would have been me I would have made 2 calls. One to the Police and one to the Game Warden. Get the slobs cited!

    Kind of funny/peculiar that you would ask someone to move when you had a video camera in your hand. Don't know the whole story, but "hit by the pool", hit him in the back of head/neck, pool. Might have a little more credibility if story was same w/o camera.

    Jimmy Borum,

    Bob Knight might be the nicest guy in the world when he's hunting with Skip Trammel, but his behavior on that video gives hunters a bad name, like it or not.

    And this is not his first hunting incident. Where there's smoke, there's likely to be fire.

    Bobby Knight, or any other hunter, is responsible for his shot from the moment it leaves the barrel until it lays immobile on the ground. If it is striking people, livestock, vehicles and buildings, then he is being an unsafe and irresponsible. The videotape came across leaving the impression that he is a first class jackass. He needed to apologize, and take immediate steps to move to a distance where his shot would safely fall, or not hunt that area at all. No wonder people are closing their property to hunting.

    Jimmy,

    With all due respect, your links are totally irrelevant to the situation at hand.

    Bob Knight might be the best coach in the world, the greatest leader in the world, and an icon of intensity, leadership, integrity, blah, blah, blah.

    But on the video, with a gun in his hand, in confrontation with a homeowner, he was a hunter. His behavior was abhorrent. He came off with the self-important attitude that I'm here on this property legally, so I can do whatever I want.

    He's wrong. And if you think he's justified in his behavior, you're wrong.

    Read Brian in Oregon's post above. It covers all the bases. I could not have said it better myself.

    I have taught hunter education for the past 7 or 8 years, and this kind of behavior gives us a black eye on national TV.

    I don't care who he is or what he's done outside this venue. In fact, I do have a great deal of respect for Bob Knight as a basketball coach.

    But he was way off base in this circumstance.

    Tim

    Certain people respond with brainwashed responses on many threads- if you are the type that has been told what to believe all your life- go ahead and believe it

    This is BS

    It probably didnt even happen- but Coach Knight may have apoligized just for the mere possibility based on the allegation

    His deeds and credibility are legendary

    Guys,

    Perception is reality.

    I haven't concluded coach Knight shot at the guy or at the guy's house.

    I concluded that what I saw on the video portrayed hunters in a bad light. Because it did.

    "How do you know this guy did not move out into a rural area and then start causing trouble because people hunt there?"

    I don't. But how coach Knight responded to him was wrong, and made hunters look bad.

    "He is a hot head at times but that does not mean he 'caused' this episode."

    You may be right. But again, how coach Knight responded to this guy was wrong.

    His actions and behavior in this instance, whether you like it or not, make all hunters look bad. That includes me, and you, if you are a hunter.

    Maybe it was a setup. Maybe this guy provoked him just so he could get his name on ESPN. All the more reason to keep your cool, behave in a non-confrontational manner, not to come off looking like a jackass.

    Tim

    You missed my point. Please read my last post again.

    He's shooting onto someone's property without their permission. He was breaking the law, and I'd have called the authorities.

    I'm on Bobby Knight's side of this. I have been involved where people just don't want you there and have made up bulls**t - to discourage future hunters.

    Once in So. Cal I was hunting out in the desert over the legal distance of 1/4 mile away from this jerks house. ( I measured the distance before hunting there ) I was shooting only the opposite way from his house and he came driving up cursing at me saying I had shot his house, which was not even close to the truth as I was only shooting 180 degrees opposite from his house. He told me to leave or he would call the sheriff, I told him I was hunting legally on BLM property and to go ahead and call, he didn't.

    People like this guy just want to discourage Knight and any future people from hunting near his property.

    P.S. Afterward the guys boy's came back to where I was and asked me if they could hold my gun ?? -- No way.

    Bobby Knight as suggested by another thread above, is NO STRANGER to the wrong side of the law when it comes to hunting infractions. His first scrape came when he and 3 hunting companions were checked on a waterfowl hunt by Indiana Conservation Officers. Knight had no valid license and no waterfowl stamps in his possession and was hunting with lead shot in a steel shot designated area. Not one ticket was issued by State or Federal officials even though his actions violated the migratory bird hunting laws.

    His second mess up I believe involved shooting a hunting companion on a Wisconsin Grouse hunt and again did not have the proper licenses and stamps. Again no charges were filed.

    Don't have a clue as to whether or not he did anything wrong this time around, he just attracts a lot of attention because many people dislike him.

    Big Oops!

    Knight was cited for the incident in Wisconsin. The charges included negligence for failing to report a accident involving a accidental shooting and once again for hunting without a license. He paid a little less than $600 in fines.

    My question is: " What kind of idiot goes hunting and gets caught TWICE without a proper license and stamps." Do you suppose he knows yet he needs a license?
