We’re in the heart of turkey season here in Minnesota, so I thought it was a good time to post this video as a reminder to stay safe and be alert in the field.
These two hunters were attempting to call two gobblers into their set-up when another hunter, unbeknownst to them, snuck up from behind and shot right through them.
Check it out:
What makes it infuriating is that the approaching hunter was shooting at their decoys. Which means that he wasn’t close enough to be sure of what he was shooting at. And he darn sure wasn’t close enough to determine what was between him and his target.
The hunter on the left actually took a few of those pellets. (If you click on the little gear in the lower right-hand corner of the video, you can slow it down to 0.25x speed, and you can see that he gets hit in the leg.)
Thankfully, none of the pellets broke skin, and both hunters were fine. Again, the fact that the approaching hunter was SO far away that his pellets didn’t even break skin just makes me certain that it was stupid to take a shot.
Remember, guys…there are people out there who will take shots like this. Stay frosty.
