I missed a jake yesterday at about 25 yds. I was swung way around to my right and it felt awkward, Probably shouldnt have shot, probably should have waited, but dang I was excited. Lets hear about them misses so I dont feel like I am the only one.

Yes on Easter Sunday I called one in off private onto public land. He must have been no more than 30 yards and I shot over his head, all on video. Unloaded 2 more shells as he ran off and watched him disappear. I was hurting bad until I got another chance right at sunset and killed one at 25 yards. Always make sure you are looking down the barrel and not over it...

Missed one two years ago at 14 yards. Than again running at 20. Then shot a tree at 35. It sucks, but it happens. I won't ever forget it.

Naw not from shooting but had one run to me one time on wrong side with my gun pointed directly away from him. He stood at 3 yards strutting until he saw my arm quivering from holding gun up. LOL

Yupp. Yesterday I was walking old logging road and rounded scorned nd there he was at 30 yards. I have gun lined in to shoot at saddles and it'll take off the top of their head well apparently I forgot that and aimed at his head and clean missed.

thats somewhat confusing...you have your gun sighted in to shoot 3"-4" high? why not sight it in to zero and aim where you want to hit?
