Why did that look like a 45lb deer with a rack? Do they get that small?

Looks to me like his scope was off and he never adjusted after the first shot, pretty funny though!

I didn't look at the video because I already know the world's worst deer hunter. Maybe he's just the worst shot. One day many years ago, he shot all his rifle ammo at a deer that was running around in an open bean field. Missed about 10 or more times. Then he pulled his revolver and started banging away and then....the miracle happened. He hit the deer in the top of the head. The deer dropped on the spot. The guy was bragging about the shot. He's the brother of a brother-in-law. The good news is that we don't have to worry about him committing suicide by shooting himself. No way he could hit a vital organ.

I posted on this video a year ago in a thread dealing with taking head shots. The claim was being made that deer don't remain still or their heads won't remain still long enough to get a decent head shot. Obviously, they do.

http://thefiringline.com/forums/show...ll+deer&page=3

See post 59.

However, this guy isn't the worst deer hunter. Check out post 44. I made links to folks who mistook livesstock for deer, a cow for a coyote, etc. Keep in mind that every year, there are deer hunters who shoot at movement and make "sound" shots at targets, believing, wanting, wishing, desiring them to be deer only to have the targets turn out to be other hunters.

+1, add horses to the list, first day of deer season NO ONE rides at our farm and the horses stay in the paddock area.

A horseback rider

came slowly trotting down a gravel track in a public land hunting area, toward me during deer season, once.

He was wearing blue jeans and a subdued color jacket. I stood in the bar ditch, wearing blaze orange hat, bandanna, and vest. When he pulled up and stopped near me, I asked him if he knew it was deer season. He did. I asked him if he knew he was on a National Forest, open to hunting. He did. Did he understand that he and his horse were in danger. HE DID NOT.

He wasn't a hunter, lived nearby, and was just exercising his horse.

I gave him a large blaze orange colored bandana and instructed him to wear it on his hat or draped over his shoulders.

I felt a little better watching him trot away back the way he came.

There are many, many stories about "the worst deer hunter ever", many of them made up, others true. I know some of them are true, I used to work with one of the worst hunters ever, and we used to just cringe when he would tell us about his outings:
- Shot a buck that turned out to be a doe. The warden "explained" it to him.
- Shot a deer and it didn't fall down! We pointed out that you have to actually hit it somewhere vital for that to happen.
- Couldn't figure out why there were no deer in the pastures, there was plenty of grass. He didn't believe us when we told him deer hide and eat branches.
- Carried a 32ACP as a sidearm in case a deer "turned on him".
- Shot a "fallow deer" one year, he was sure because it had spots.

And on and on . . .

Major Dave, thanks for helping out the clueless horseman........

Scorch, hope that guy never comes to Missouri to hunt.

Finally, these stories are the reason I have only hunted deer on my little 25 acres for the last several years. Well, that plus keeping the trespassers run off

"...his scope was off and he never..." The putz likely never sighted in or practiced.

Lol he grouped two shots in the same spot on the ground, no obvious attempts to adjust fire

Apparently, not sighting in rifles before hunting is a common issue...

Actually, he didn't group at all. The first shot was to the left of the buck's neck. The second was much higher and way left of the head. The third was much lower and left of the neck. I don't think his closest two shots (#s 1 and 3) were closer than 2 feet together. You can get the same sort of results from a loose scope.

How about a dose of adrenalin and an off hand shot?
When we have our site in days before season everyone sits at a bench with a commercial rest, then expect to be able to take an off hand shot while pumped!
I was just happy to see what looked like a clean miss, however that would need to be verified by a thorough ground search.

That's not the worst hunter. When I go it's more like Armed Hiking.

I wonder if

he was shooting a magnum caliber. It occurs to me that he didn't shift his shots to the right because he was losing his target during recoil. If so, he just didn't know where his bullets were hitting!
