Two bass boats encountered a scary moment when they witnessed someone attempt to shoot a whitetail buck swimming in the lake.
The angler videoed the scene, simply enjoying the moment, when all of a sudden shots were fired in the direction of the buck. Hysteria ensued. The land near this part of the lake is in the Coosa County Wildlife Management Area.
Watch and see how it all unfolded.
I had a scary moment yesterday while fishing. It was a very cold morning so I was being very careful wearing my life...
In fact, both boats caught the scene on video. Here's the other angle.
Nonetheless, no one should ever shoot at water. There are too many variables that the bullet could have ricocheted off of. We're just glad these anglers are OK. As for the buck, we're not sure of the outcome.
