Hunter Shoots at a Trophy Buck and Sure Didn’t Mean to Hit That

Talk about bad luck…

Watch as this hunter takes a shot at a big 10-pointer, but his rifle is clearly not zeroed in and the poor rabbit in the background goes flying.

To give the hunter in this video some credit, here is his explanation as to why both of his shots were so far off the mark… and right on the rabbit.

“To make a long story short, my son dropped my rifle one week before this hunt and did not tell me it was dropped, after making two repetitive shots with custom loads, I knew it was not me. 15 minutes later, buck came back out and I had a chance to get my other gun from my truck and harvest him, however I did not film the fatal shot, but I have pictures. Please notice innocent bystander (rabbit) on the first shot. I was shooting a 7mm Magnum.”

Note to hunters: If you let anyone borrow your rifle, even if it is a family member, you better check the scope before going back out in the field.

Note to rabbits: Don’t hang around big bucks during hunting season…
