Okay last saterday I decided to do a little road hunt when I got off work. 6 am I left work and decided to go down Chena Hot springs. Well I crossed over the chena river on nordale and drove past a spike, I was 40 yards from him but couldnt see through my sight (Tang site on sharps rifle) so I waited and waited for over an hour the bull just stood there but as daylight came he stepped into woods and never found him.
I Decided to push foward to the Hot springs road saw alot of cars and hunters as I expected and I said to myself well anything can happen and bam 2 40 inch bulls were standing along side the road. I pulled over grabbed the rifle walked off the road and was like crap cant shoot (stood right behind one another) or I would take 2 moose with 1 shot, being like they where approx 50 yards away. Soon they walked into the woods and I sware they even stayed in step and like they rehersed it never once giving me a shot where you wouldnt for sure hit both animals, so i tried to follow them but they changed direction and started to cross a creek. I ran about 50 yards to hopefully catch them crossing and the second bull stopped and stood there. Well for those of you who have carried a sharps know that when you run and suddenly stop to aim its almost impossible to hold the weapon steady and well I missed in fact i missed so bad he didnt even run, he just looked at me and walked into the brush never to be seen agian.
I couldnt believe it and replay in my head but the risk was to great to kill one while possibly wounding another so I had to let them go.
