I've missed twice in my hunting career. One time was due to the idiot I was hunting with and the other was due to an interloping coyote.missing_something said:Glad to see your a perfect hunter and never miss the exact point that your aiming at.
Maybe if the guy wouldn't have come across bragging about it and seemed ashamed of having made a bad shot - as he SHOULD have been - we would have thought differently. I, too, was disgusted with that post. Before you ask, not all of my shots on game while hunting have been perfect. I at least realize that I screwed up and behaved accordingly.missing_something said:Glad to see your a perfect hunter and never miss the exact point that your aiming at.
I would venture to say he can get additional practice in so that he can judge wind speed much better. If that was not the issue, and there was absolutely no wind, check his equipment. If the equipment checks out, he should get a bull horn so he can tell the deer to stand still so he can shoot it, or he can just quit making shots across canyons.How would he possibly "address the problem"?
