I have 2.

1. Hunting buffleheads on north shore lake pontcharttrain. Drake hen pair come zooming around backside at maybe 40 yds. Had to swing completely backwards dropped both with 2 shots.

2. I sent an arrow down the center of another arrow in my target at 40 yds. I was shooting aluminum a then so they were stuck together. I still have them in my house somewhere

1. 6 point crosses 50 yds in front of me before daylight and lose him in the cutover. I see him 200 yds away on ridge and think he is goner. He quarters back and circles behind me through a cutover. As he is moving through cutover I notice he will cross a 4 ft wide clearing about 50 yards behind me. I cocked the Marlin and watched him and the clearing simultaneously until he hits the clearing. As soon as I see shoulder in scope I squeeze trigger. Rolled him up.

2. Doe @ 75 yards quartering away free hand with the Marlin. Right in the boiler room.

3. Squirrel on backside of tree and would flip to the other side when i would creep around to shoot. I throw a stick past tree on other side. Squirrel thinks its me. Flips to me side. Gets dropped.

During a bb/pellet gun war I saw my brother duck behind a bush while I was perched on the name neighbor's roof. I shot into the bush and he pops up holding his neck and screaming.

re: Tell me about the best lucky shot you ever made.


Hunting some new growth pines in South Alabama. I walked around a curve in a field road to see deer go everywhere. Some ran down into a hollow and some back into the pines. I saw a doe throw her head and neck into a lane in between the rows of pines. When I threw up to shoot I settled the scope on her neck and pulled the trigger. She was only 50 yards away or so and dropped in her tracks. When I got up there I had hit her right where I aimed, but I had also clipped the spinal cord of the doe who was standing directly behind her and out of my sight. I had no idea there were 2 standing there. No way I'm good enough to pull a 2 for 1 shot off like that on purpose. It was strictly luck and something I will never forget.It happened when I was 14 and I can remember it like it was yesterday

My dad always told me the more exact the number, the bigger the lie not 300, but 298 and 305.


I'm just kidding, I only called a little bull shite.

re: Tell me about the best lucky shot you ever made.


I was deer hunting with a buddy long ago and we were sneaking up on some deer on the other side of a rise. When we peered over the top of the terrace the deer were gone but two huge gobblers were walking towards us. My buddy had never shot one so he decides to shot when they are about 15 yards from us. He misses shoots again and misses. We both stand up and the turkeys are running full speed across the open field. When they get to the edge of the woods they are running parallel to us at about 70 yards. I raise my 300 win. Mag flip up the scope cover and proceed to shoot the lead turkey in the head while he was at a full run.
My buddy just looks at me like "are you freaking kidding me".

You wouldn't happen to be referring to Rosco, would you? Unless small pigs have a habit of drowning in mop buckets at houses off of Burbank, then I too knew and loved this majestic creature.

I hit a tank silhouette dead center with a training round from a M72 LAW at about 100 meters. It was only the second time I'd ever fired the thing.

That was f*cking trippy.

Not so much lucky but I shot a 350lb boar hog in the arse with a 45-70 one time because that's all I could see in the pine thicket and I watched him yell a squeal and buck like a bronc and take off running. He left a nice blood trail and the pain in his arse eventually slowed him down to where I could shoot him in the head.

IT was hell getting him out of the woods though

Shot wasnt luck but here's another one i forgot about. Shot doe in food plot. She was looking behind her nervously before i shot. I shouldve known. I popped her. Get down and standing over her in the wide open when i notice movement in woods from where she came from. A deer was walking away from me with low sneaky profile. I realize its the buck following. I get low on ground next to doe. Grunt several times and buck comes walking back with nose to ground. I rack another shell and sit and wait. 8 pt walks with 7 yds and looks confused as to why his date is laying down and something hovering above it. Blam! 2 down that day.
