Lets list some lesson we have each learned, the might help a fellow member.......
Something I have done.......And that I have had five or six clients do. Just before you crest a ridge you bend over and quietly creep the last little bit. This is when I want the client close to my right. Your bent-over and you slowly rise to peek over, expecting to see game quite some distance away. But there not 10 feet or ten yards is 5 Rams or 8 nice Caribou, that you never expected to ever see that close.
I whisper to the client, "Second one from the right". My heart is racing, clients heart is racing. The animals are all frozen looking straight at us.
There is a massive explosion, moss and tundra and rocks explode into the sky. I am shell shocked, I look to see if the hunter rifle exploded. A mill'a-second and I realize what happened. We race forward..........and sometime the hunter gets the animal sometimes NOT. Sometime they run away, and sometimes they just fast walk away.
Anybody been there and done that. The scope view is clear of the ground. Sadly the bore line is below the top of the mountain.
