Famous Bowhunter Cameron Hanes Can’t Help But Take a Selfie…That Scares Away His Game [VIDEO]

This is a pretty embarrassing moment for Cameron Hanes but you really can’t blame him. We all love our social media. 

Cameron Hanes was hunting water buffalo in the Australian Outback.

As he stalks the animal, he pauses to take a selfie…and scares the buffalo away.


As he looks up from his smartphone to see his quarry running away from him, he seems a bit embarrassed. He tries futilely to call the buffalo back but the buffalo is gone. He wasn’t ready to be famous.

I’m not sure if Hanes is more upset about the lost game or that the perfect selfie was ruined. A selfie of a water buffalo with a background of the Australian Outback would have gotten a whole lot of likes.

As Hanes walks back to the cameraman, looking defeated, he says;

Don’t take a selfie at crunch time…but the good thing is, this place is so awesome I’m not even worried about it.

That’s the right attitude.
