Is it superdeer? Nope. Just lucky.

Now that was funny!
In a few years when the dust finally clears and people start counting their change there is a pretty good chance that President Obama may become known as The Great Absquatulator. You heard it first here on TFL.

WOW!!!!! Did you notice that the bullet hit in the same place all three times. Looks like he had some range time rezeroing the scope. The way I look at it if I missed a neck shot the first time and had another shot I'd go for the body.

Sounded more like a war zone than a deer hunt. At the end of the video did that guy really say "Gosh"? I am sure that is not the word I would have used at that moment

I wander how far away the deer was. It sounds like a lever action rifle was being used. Maybe a 30-30, 32, or 35. If the distance was under 150 yards this guy better quit hunting or get some serious shooting instruction.

Maybe he bumped his scope. This is why I always get a see through mount so I can drop back to irons. Funny vid non the less. That buck must have been petrified with fear to stand there that long or rut plain stupid.

I think the shooter is leading the deer (shotgun style). I've never shot at a running deer, but I'm told you aim at the hair on its chest (broadside) or just a few inches ahead of that spot.

Even with a gun that's not sighted in; I bet I could nail that deer after that many shots. Me thinks the missing was intentional.

If it wasn't so funny...

I would be disappointed for the guy. That was a nice buck.
