Ok, anybody that has hunted very long has a "few" special shots that seem to stick in ones head, how about sharing!
I will go back, well maybe wayyy back, to age 19. Hunting deer & pheasant in South Dakota. I was with 2 chaps - one was blocking a large grassy draw with rifle for deer, other was walking near me with shotgun for birds! I was packing a Rem 700 ADL, 6mm w/6X redfield scope.
A whitetail buck stands up on a far hill, Steve says "there's a buck, but he's too far away" - Hmmm, I pull up and shoot offhand - deer runs & I jack another in and bang and buck disappears. Steve ( the adult ) gives me grief - kid that was too far - blah blah blah. I said "we'll see"!
430 steps later I have my hands on a small 8 point buck, one thru the lungs, one thru the hips! Wanna help me drag this puppy out Steve I said with a smirk!
Whats one of your cool shot stories?
