A video is worth a thousand words. Somebody posted this on my facebook and the captions was "Some People Should Stick to Fishing."
Nope.missed my first deer, did you?
She was laying down maybe 7 or 8 feet from me, and facing me.
I guess she figured if she did not move, I would not see her.
The guy I was hunting with walked right by her, and didn't see her.
He jumped about a foot when I fired ... (he was maybe 40 yards in front of me)
"Was that you?"
"What are you shooting at?!?"
"There isn't a deer there!"
(Pointed) "Then what's that?"
He came back to look.
"Huh ... I didn't see her ..."
I used a Marlin .30-30 levergun on that trip.
I ain't proud of that shot, but I did have a doe tag, and she was yummy.
I am willing to cut the shooter some slack. She sounds like a young gal. I may be assuming something but this sounds like it may have been her first deer hunt. I missed my first deer, did you?
