Deer hunt long enough, and you’re bound to experience buck fever…just maybe not to this level.
Buck fever can make even the steeliest of shooters commit dumb mistakes.
There’s no shame on Earth like the aftershock of the illness…unless your episode was captured on film like it was in this clip.
Listen for the shot and remember, this is a bowhunter. There’s something a little off about that sound.
How many monster deer have lived another day simply because a hunter lost their mind when they were about to shoot?
This buck owes his life to the trim on a shooting window and that bowhunter will never forget the time he shot a blind instead of his buck.
Whatever you do though, don’t laugh too hard. Everyone has their turn with buck fever. I had mine just a few days ago and it still stings.
