Missed a pair of turkeys yesterday with my cylinder bore 12ga 870 I've hunted with my whole life, and Win gray-box 4 buck.

Excuses thusfar, in only 14 hours:

"Dang gun's broke!"
"They musta been farther than I thought!"
"...shoulda loaded up some 6's."
"I was too hungry."
"Friggin wind musta been blowin a hundred miles an hour!!"
"Barrel's bent."
"Wad hit'm. Shot musta been loaded light."
"Damn Winchester crap. I'm usin reloads tomorrow..."
"Sun was in my eyes."
"Shot at'm with slugs. Just missed'm by a hair!"
"All I could think about was your wife!!" :D
"Firing pin musta stuck."
"Had the safety on."
"Just woke up from my nap, eyes were fuzzy."
"I really only wanted a buck."
:D You got any excuses I can borrow? I'm runnin out. :D

Here are some really bad ones:

"Dadgum pile of corn got in the way."
"Hard to focus after that seventh beer."
"They ran into my cannibas crop, and I couldn't bring myself to shoot."
"I prefer to take turkeys with dynamite anyway."
"Game Warden showed up, and I had to deal with him..... Want a rib?"

DISCLAIMER: The above excuses are intended for comedic effect only. The author neither condones nor practices hunting in the fashion it is depicted in these excuses.

Well, redeemed myself today. Got a fat hen right in the same spot where I missed the previous two. Same gun, same load, only about 20 yards closer this time, and just after I woke up from a very satisfying nap in my spot. :D

Happy Thanksgiving to me! :D
