Doing a Dick Cheney impression, Oklahoma State Rep. Steve Vaughn accidentally shot a fellow hunter last month.

There were also several other hunters present during the pheasant hunt at the Bluestem Hunting Reserve near Perry, Okla.

“I said, ‘You know, everybody’s shooting, [and] I don’t know that it was me, per se, but I would say it probably would have been because the bird did go that direction and I did shoot that direction,’” Vaughn told The Oklahoman.

“I’m a safety guy,” added Vaughn. “Gosh, I’m as safety as I can be. I was so mad at myself for even thinking about shooting the bird in this direction where I knew he was down in there.”

“We’ve been doing this for 15 years,” stated Verl Brorsen, who owns the reserve. “We’ve had over 4,000 people come through. First time anybody has been injured.”
