Watch as this hunter takes a shot at a big 10-pointer, but his rifle is clearly not zeroed in and the poor rabbit in the background goes flying.
When you see the video the hunter takes 2 shots at the deer, but misses both. But, lets give the hunter some credit, here is his explanation. "To make a long story short, my son dropped my rifle one week before this hunt and did not tell me it was dropped, after making two repetitive shots with custom loads, I knew it was not me. 15 minutes later, buck came back out and I had a chance to get my other gun from my truck and harvest him, however I did not film the fatal shot, but I have pictures. Please notice innocent bystander (rabbit) on the first shot. I was shooting a 7mm Magnum."
Take a look at the video here.
Talk about wrong place, wrong time.
Moron hunter has moron offspring (and future Darwin award)who was playing with the gun. Double moron hunter for advertising to the world he’s a moron.
Son, how many times do I have to tell you, don’t mess with my reticle!
ummm... sorry bout that bunny, but Buggs shouldn’t have been poaching on the man’s deer.
Discovered another new hunting season no-no. Don’t watch nature shows featuring ginormous trophy bucks on your new 80 inch super high def screen without closing the darned curtains.
Thought I had me a Boone & Crockett contender for sure.
Game farm buck baited site most likely shot the rabbit on purpose.
No wild buck would hang round nor come back in 10 minutes.
now that mad this old man laugh
I believe we see a very rare sight, actual knockdown power from a firearm on Bugs Bunny as he goes ass over teakettles
nice.. good thinking we hunt varmints with dogs on these farms and the dogs bump them all night long ...can not chase away from the feeders, even with dogs. we run bells with the dogs just to scare the deer away...still does not work
When did Rabbits start carrying C4 and why?
“Cat Sh*t one ,Down.”
Not my rabbits, man.
Dick Cheney went hunting again?
repeat Watership Down!
I’m surprised the deer was still there considering all the racket he made before the first shot.
“That rabbit’s dynamite!”
That bunny is thinking WTF I’m playing dead already leave me alone !
He didn’t say his son was playing with the gun, he said his son dropped the gun. His offspring might be an adult already for all we know, who meant to re-sight the scope but forgot. There’s not really enough info to indicate whether either of them are “morons.”
