What is your biggest mistake

Discussion in 'Upland Game and Hunting Dogs' started by Walter Adkins, Apr 1, 2005.

  1. Mine was when I was just a youngster. I was 8 and on my first turkey trip with dad. We had hunted a few days and had not seen any birds. Well I got bored and leaned my gun on the tree in front of me. Yep you can see were this is going but hold on. Not only did a turkey show up mere 15 yards in front of me but when I saw the bird I got so excited that I yelled "Turkey Turkey Turkey". When I finaly got my gun ready the bird was gone. I was a little upset but not half as bad as my dad. :D

    taking a greenhorn hunting that had no prior hunters training. he decided to pull the trigger to see if the safety was on or off. it was OFF. thank god , the gun was pointed in the air. only thing lost was hearing for a few minutes. we were duck hunting and i figured as long as the gun was pointed out in front ,ther shouldn't be any problems.live and learn . this was about 15 yrs ago.
     
  7. When i first started deer hunting with a bow. I had taken off the field points off my arrows but didn't put in any broadheads. When i shot at a deer the arrow just bounced off and it left me wondering what the heck happend.

    about 20 yrs ago ilet a friend shoot my bow . i had a 5ft x 5ft backstop. the first shot was right in there, close to the middle. the 2nd shot sailed over the backstop and stuck right in my truck. looked good ,just like a bullet hole. the truck was a beater ,so i didn't care that much but he was done aqfter that.
     
  9. WOW...
    I used to let my wife shoot my bow and she was pretty good at it too till I stuck a deer target up and she ran one right smack into the side of my van... She said she may have overshot just to spook it away ......

    With their great eyesight, I think the biggest mistake I make during turkey hunting is breathing.....If only I could hold my breath longer....haha jk
