Default Remember the hunting guide shootout incident near Big Bend?

There was quite the media and political firestorm over this almost 5 years ago, and several long TBH threads on it. First the story was they were ambushed by cartel members then it was discovered they just shot each other. Were they drunk? Had they argued? A prank gone awry? Just a huge unfortunate cluster? Much is known but some mysteries still remain - the main being "Who shot Walker Daugherty?"

Long article from Texas Monthly but a good recap and update on everybody involved

No story that starts off with the term "Undocumented Migrants" is trustworthy.

This almost happened at our lease. 10:30pm we hear what sounds like a shotgun go off. We grab our pistols {I think there were 3 of us} and go out to investigate. It was close. Then another shot goes off by a motor home in the parking area. We stay together and walk to it knowing the owner was in town at a bar. As we walk up to it another large bang goes off from the inside of it. We carefully open it up and find the freezer door wide open with exploded frozen coke cans inside...........................

But according to expert who viewed the X-ray of the bullet lodged in Walker’s lung, he said that even considering the shadow effect that the bullet diameter is greater than the .223 belonging to the other guide. And they can’t account for one of the two spent .357 rounds fired by the driver of the RV. He said he only fired one round through the door of the RV from the inside.

In the beginning the guy in the rv said someone was knocking on the door saying they are here to take the rv. So he felt threatened and shot through the door. I wonder if he was dreaming?

Here are some cliff notes:

Hunter sleeping in rv hears someone trying to open door and shoots through the door like an idiot.

Then he starts driving off and honking the horn.

The guides think this it is illegals kidnapping their clients in the rv so start blasting the rv like idiots.

One of the guides goes back inside the home to get more ammo and gets shot in the lung

His wife or some dip**** woman decides to shoot her gun in the house instead of releasing the hammer.

They all get together and cant figure out they are all dumb asses for shooting at each other.

PS. It may have been the hunter that shot the guide with his 357 or the guy that shot Kennedy may have got him. Don’t go on a auodad hunt at circle dug ranch.

I may be crazy. One thing the officer didn't question...

Quote from story “Edwin and Carol were sharing the camper with their Jack Russell terrier, Tinker Bell, and a talking African gray parrot.”
