Old video. Funny though. I'd probably quit hunting if I shot like that.

A friend had that same thing happen to him. It turned out it wasn't his aim that was bad. His scope mounts were loose.

Lucky deer?!? More like bad hunter. I could see where the shots were hitting in the road.

My brother pulled something like that with his old 32 special lever action, open iron sights. I think he hit the deer though on the forth shot in the head (when aiming for the chest!). The deer did'nt move at all when he was shooting. Tippman you should ask him about that one!

    • Watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg) or when it swings up past 30.0 Hg. That's my reference on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. 
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
