I guess you can say I was pacing myself. My first buck hunt lasted an hour and a half and ended 14, yes 14, bullets later. The bucks were out in the field posing for me and trying to hold back the laughter as I volleyed seemingly endless rifle fire followed by an expletive under my breath after each miss. The funny thing is neither buck I saw even bothered to run, they just stood there unimpressed by my hunting skills, standing out there seemingly mocking me. They kinda looked like this > Yes, it was quite embarrassing but now I've got a ton of venison in the freezer! My first deer at 42! An eight point buck!
