I think tonight's events were too funny not to share: So one of my best friends and I decided get a hunt in this evening. I was at a stand with my bow where deer have been passing frequently. We have a pond at one of the ends of our land and none of us had been across it yet. We just got a boat down to the camp this week so we can go across and hunt our land there. My friend decided to go there with his 4570 (and for some unknown reason, only 2 rounds). About 45 minutes into the hunt I hear 2 shots within about 5-10 seconds of each other. At first I wasn't sure if I should be excited (my friend might have been the one who shot) or angry if somebody else was hunting our land. I soon recieve a call from my buddy that they were both his shots and he MISSED both times!!! To make things funnier, he and I received awards this morning for shooting "experts" (40 out of 40 targets) while deployed this past year! :rofl: He said that the doe never flinched or moved and both shots went over her back (even after he adjusted after the first miss). He called my about 5 minutes later and said that the doe was still standing there and he heard some more deer coming into the area (but he was out of ammo, LOL). About 10 minutes later he calls me and tells me to meet him at the pond. He was going to take me to his spot so that I can try and get them with my bow. I met him at the pond, we loaded the boat up and left for our 50yd journey across the pond. We only had 1 short paddle to propel us through the water (and we were sitting on the high fishing chairs - BAD COMBO!!!). About 6 feet into the journy we started taking on water from the rocking we were causing trying to row with the short paddle. I immediately jumped out into the water (knee deep in cold, snake infested water) to keep us from completely sinking. We decided that I'll go over alone since he couldn't do anything. So I start back on my journey and after another 6 feet I feel the back end dip down and before I know it I'm in the pond almost chest deep and the boat is completely under water. About this time I also remember that my iPhone is in my pocket! :gasp::rofl: The fate of the phone is still to be determined, but it was one funny disaster!
