- Time of past OR future Camino
Hunting party shooting on the Camino Finisterre this Sunday in mountains between Hospital and Cee. Was alarmed to hear 3 shots fired very very close to me, screamed out at top of my voice 'Stop shooting, I am here' shooting stopped and 3 cars of hunters (& dogs in trailers) drove past me a couple of minutes later. I flagged them down and communicated it was too dangerous with pilgrams on trail & they scared me, they were respectful. Best advice for pilgrams is to shout out loudly if you hear gunfire, keep shouting till gunfire stops, most hunters will hold fire if they here someone shouting (they're often wearing ear plugs so shout loudly) . Although there's 0-5% chance of being shot, it's 100% chance of being catastrophic so take your own life in your hands and let the hunters know you're there. I've hunted and shot rifles in Australia so this isn't being alarmist, it's a being realist and keeping youself & them, safe from harm.
