Missed one!!

Postby BigBuckeye » March 31st, 2014, 5:18 pm

Well, it must happen to everyone!!
42 yds out and he ran away...stung but not injured enough not to fly away thank goodness.

Patterned my gun again when I got back to the truck and although unlikely, there were enough gaps that no pellets could have hit him in the head.

Surprised. 3.5" Hevi Shot, yes $6 each and still no guarantee :)

Next time I will wait a little longer on him to come in. Thought he would spook when my partner needed to move. He wasn't ready when he came over the hill.

Anyway...next time. For now, just some restless nights of sleep.
I can't get any sleep!!!

Never a good feeling when that happens, as i've been there and do it also ;)

I use a hevi-shot ckoke tube and it's got dead all over it w/ Hevi 13's :shock:
Ever wonder where the white goes when the snow melts????

I hate it when that happens but it will make you concentrate more the next time you pull the trigger.
Is it turkey season yet?
