Insane! ... not to mention cruel (unless the range was maybe 10 ft)

That video is amazing...not only did he miss three times (let alone the fact that he got three chances), but judging from where the dust clouds rose, he didn't even come CLOSE!

What distance would anyone estimate those shots were taken from?

... my guess 50-55 yd. The misses are consistently left, which at first let me think it could have been gun/sight off (giving shooter benefit of the doubt), but misses don't appear to be consistent up/down, which let's me think shooter problem.

Yeah, I'd have guessed about that...maybe a tad more. I realilze I'm a newbie and all, but from that distance, wouldn't one be able to aim adequately for some kind of a hit, even just by pointing the barrel?

This guy looked like he was missing his mark by 3-4 feet...at 50 yards, you should be more accurate than that with a *baseball*.

I would say a hunter with some kind of experince should have been able to figure out the problem right off, I mean he should have been able to compensate his shot, by aiming more to the right, like the butt of the animal should have given a kill shot. But again the hunter made have had Buck Fever, and wasn't thinking straight, but the camera man should have been his spotter telling him, where to aim. Think

I got this clip in an email recently. I will withold the guy's name, but the info I got was this hunt was in Canada. I can only assume the scope got knocked around on the trip up.
