thats a good shot. open sights at range isnt easy. bet he couldnt do it again in a year lol
My god how embarrasing. I cant even imagine the entire internet can see this and come to the conclusion this is a hunter. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot as a group. So many things are wrong about this to count.
I would agree. I'd take luck on a shot like that!!
Not a good representation of hunters, in general.
"First shot, ever, with that rifle". Not very responsible.
Entirely correct M14sROCK, as HUNTERS we have a duty to our prey to provide as humane a death as possible to our quarry. To shoot at a living breathing, pain feeling creature with a gun you have never shot, at extreme range with a gun, while a good military gun, is not known for being accurate enough to hit the 8" vital area of a hog even with a benchrest. Then for , I will use the next phrase loosely, "grown men" to giggle like some 10 year old school girls who just got their first kiss, after an accidental hit and then act like they are God with a gun ,will fuel the fires of the anti - hunter crowd. It would not surprise me if this video is now on the anti hunter web site.
I echo the sentiment - impossibly lucky shot with a totally unfamiliar rifle at extreme range. What responsible hunter would go afield with a rifle he had never fired? The whole thing reeked - only thing missing in camera view would be the beer cooler.
to think the mosin nagant was built for the purpose of killing people from trenchs to the cities and now it's probably used to kill more animals then people. But it is one damn good rifle.
it was irresponsible of him to not go to the range with that rifle first should have gotten closer to insure a kill shot. But then again the mosin isn't really hard to shoot, esp if you have a rifle background, if you really think about it though everyone sees thing differently tomato tomatto
Okay, I finally got the nerve to watch this video. And, of course, I have a question. (SURPRISE!)
Does "open sites" mean without a scope?
WoC, you are correct.
How many times have we passed on shots because it just was'nt right. This would have been one of those times!
For all the hunters who are upset at this guy for using an unzeroed rifle at a long range & for giggling over his kill, i have a question "had any damage from feral hogs lately?". These are pests, vermin, a plague, no different that a bunch of locusts or mosquitos, so i have to ask "have you zeroed that ant poison, flyswatter, bug light you are using?" To hell with some feral pigs; they are destroying not only yards & pastures, but the food upon which native species depend. What a crock of crap!
Let's save the soapboxxing for an animal that isn't a verminous scourge across the ENTIRE FREAKIN' PLANET.
The guy should've fitted up the bayonet & finished it off with that.
That was my thought!! His buddy wanted to take a shot w/ a shotgun>>>>
Sure they were morons, and paid for a pig hunt. But, that shot....
I considered the damage, destruction and carnage caused by feral hogs before I posted. However, leaving the hog alive after whacking it was callous. It should have been finished off quickly. This is not a good representation of hunters, in general.
Humane is humane, no matter the circumstances. I have no problem with the 350 yard shot, and have no problem taking a 350 yard shot myself. And I have NO problem with whacking feral hogs at every opportunity.
Besides, even if you don't care about the suffering of an animal, meat tastes like crap if it takes forever to die.
Some call it "hunting"; i call it "pest control". I bleve that is our only difference.
I'm with you. But I still kill pests humanely, and quickly.
What kind of roach spray do you use? Glue traps for rodents?
No roaches, thank God. We don't use sprays around the house or lawn.
We have house geckos for bugs and a pitbull for rodents. And we also have the neighborhood cat who loves to patrol the perimeter "jungle". I also use the "have a heart" live catch traps, and take the rats to the hills and let them go. And I have a "Rat Zapper" electronic rat trap that kills them like the Hand of God, but I have not used it since we moved last year (no orange trees at the new house).
But if we did use poisons I would have a double standard. Pigs are reportedly 7x smarter than dogs, while roaches would get no mercy at Chez Rock.
