Miss once, bad aim. Miss twice, checks rifle scope… dammit. According to this South Texas hunter, his son dropped his rifle, which threw the scope outta whack. Which happens from time to time, and is why you should always double check before you hit the deer stand.
Unfortunately for this poor rabbit, it threw the scope off just enough to put himself in the path of the 7mm Magnum round. There wasn’t much left of him after that…
“To make a long story short, my son dropped my rifle one week before this hunt and did not tell me it was dropped, after making two repetitive shots with custom loads, I knew it was not me.
Fifteen minutes later, buck came back out and I had a chance to get my other gun from my truck and harvest him, however I did not film the fatal shot, but I have pictures.
Please notice innocent bystander (rabbit) on the first shot. I was shooting a 7mm Magnum.”
Sounds like it all worked out in the end (well, not for the rabbit), but this is why you double check your scopes people…
It’s hard out here for a rabbit…
Hunter Misses Buck With FIVE Straight Shots
If your last deer season was a rough one, here’s a little something to remind yourself that it could be a lot worse…
According to My World Outdoors, deer hunter Brandon Adams was hunting out in northwest Oklahoma when he got one hell of an opportunity at buck. In fact, he got FIVE shots at the buck before he ran out of bullets. And he didn’t just miss, he missed BAD.
It happens to the best of us, but still… you just hate to see it.
Check your scopes people.
Luke Bryan Misses Turkey From Point Blank Range
Huntin’ and shootin’ and missin’ every day.
In an old episode of Buck Commander, country music’s own Luke Bryan was out turkey hunting with Jason Aldean and the rest of the Buck Commander crew when a turkey walked right into his kitchen… and he MISSED him.
A laughable moment for Luke who’s always a good sport no doubt, and shortly thereafter, he finally bagged himself a solid turkey.
But that first shot… tough scene.
