My buddy and I were hunting last year and got set up on a gobbling bird before daylight. Everything worked out perfectly, he hammered at us on the roost, hit the ground and came in on a string. I lost the coin toss so I was video taping and my friend was shooting. As the bird worked his way towards us I was getting some great footage on the camera. Once the bird got to about ten steps my buddy pulls the trigger and the shell didn't go off! That bird putted and took off running, then flying for dear life!
We checked the video after he was gone and we realized that we both missed. In my excitement I forgot to hit the record button! Once the bird was gone we circled him and called him in again and he hung up at about 70 yards. We ended up naming that bird "Ol' Snap." He better look out this year though because its my turn to shoot ( with the gun)! Maybe this time I won't "miss."
