Montana Man Kills Sportsman Channel Host, then Self

First post: Hope u enjoy!

WHITEFISH, Mont. (AP) -- A northwestern Montana man shot and killed the host of the Sportsman Channel show "A Rifleman's Journal" while the TV personality was visiting the shooter's wife, police said Friday.

Wayne Bengston, 41, then beat his wife, took his 2-year-old son to a relative's house and drove to his home about 25 miles away in West Glacier, where he apparently killed himself, Whitefish police said.

Police identified the shooting victim as Gregory G. Rodriguez, 43, of Sugar Land, Texas. Bengston's wife told police that Rodriguez was in town on business and visiting her at her mother's house in Whitefish when her husband showed up Thursday night.

It wasn't clear how Rodriguez and the woman were acquainted.


After the shooting, Flathead County sheriff's deputies found Bengston's truck parked in his driveway. Efforts by a police SWAT team to contact Bengston inside the house were unsuccessful, and officers found the man's body with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said.

Besides appearing on TV, Rodriguez was the founder and CEO of Global Adventure Outfitters. According to the outfitters' website, he was an editor at Shooting Times Magazine and a contributing editor at Petersen's Hunting, Guns & Ammo and Dangerous Game.

He was a mortgage banker before founding Global Adventure Outfitters, and he has hunted in 21 countries, the website says.

"A Rifleman's Journal" tracks Rodriguez's hunting travels to exotic locations, according to a Sportsman Channel description. He has a wife and two children, it says.

A woman who answered the phone at Global Adventure Outfitters on Friday confirmed that Rodriguez had been in Montana but said the organization would not be making a statement at the time.

oh ffs.... so, humans that still posses the urge to hunt or fish (which comes straight from man's self preservation instinct) are now murderers?

if life is life, then all life is equal... if you feel that way, then i hope you dont mow the lawn, live in a home built from plant materials or eat plants then. they are alive too.

the natural balance on this beautiful place we live in requires both predators and prey... never forget that. when you forget that, you deny nature the credit it deserves for creating both in such a harmonious way.

also, just a question.... where do you stand (morally) on plants that kill animals? there are carnivorous plants.... are they murders as well?

What would have been hilarious is if the story unfolded that this guy was interviewing this man's wife to get her take on a story he was writing about the man for his magazine or something.

Thinks his wife is cheating, but he's actually about to get a little fame and BOOM! Blows the dude's head off.

That's what I thought as I was reading.
