Trust us, it doesn't get any dumber than this.
There are a couple things you need to do before heading out for your hunt. Check your gun, check your scope, check the wind and check your attitude. Short list, right?
Obviously, there's a lot more than that when it comes to being a hunter, but if you've attended a hunter's safety course and have been a good student of fellow sportsman, you should have all the basics down way before you ever put a foot in the rung of your treestand.
That doesn't appear to have been the case for this hunter.
Watch the video below:
It's hard to figure out exactly what's happening here. The video does not come with a description, but one YouTube commenter suggested that this may have happened prior to him taking the shot,
"This is really old. I remember the original post probably 10 years ago. The guy's rifle had fallen over and his scope was knocked out of alignment. Note from the dust that he's holding a good group."
The original video was indeed uploaded quite a long time ago (you can tell by quality), so we'll have to just take his word for it.
You'd think the deer would've run off, though, but we guess not. There are no winners here in this video, just a lesson learned for a hunter who has hopefully improved his shooting/gun skills all these years.
