when this whole horrible thing happened, I was VERY close to it.  I even heard the shots.  it's a really sad thing that happened so I think that it would be great if you would create something for the families involved in this whole thing.  there are already a lot of funds going on up here for them so i thought it would be nice to send gifts instead.  If you're interested, post here or private message me and i can give you my info.  Thanks!

here's the story:

 a man (Choa Vang)  wanted to hunt on another person's property in exeland wisconsin but the owner of the land wouldn't let him.  later, that landowner and the rest of the hunters that were with him saw Vang sitting in their treestand on their land so they went to ask him to leave.   Vang, in the end, shot eight people: 5 died, 3 were injured, and now currently one of the injured passed away, one was released from the hospital, and one is still in the hospital.  Vang hasn't been charged yet but if you want to read a news-worthy version of this story go to a news channel website and im pretty positive that you'll find something about it

you may wat to be a bit more specific in exactly what it is you want people to make. Also,l removed a few posts from this thread, arguing specifics and semantics of the situation.

What, specifically, do you need for the families? Blankets, bears, donations? let us know, I am sure there are people who will want to help!

Here's a CNN story on this issue:
http://www.cnn.com/2004/LAW/11/23/hunters.shot/
At the end of the article, it notes that "The Rice Lake Hunters Survivors and Victims Fund has been created to help their families [of the dead]."  Perhaps you could contact them and ask what the families might need?

i guess basically i'm looking for anything that you want to give. nothing in particular. just something to let those families know that there are people who want to help
