Buck Fever To The Max
Info From Licensor: "After hiking for 2 hours in the dark, and gaining 2000 ft in elevation, we got into position on the bucks we had previously scouted right at first light. It was opening morning of Utah's general season rifle deer hunt. My buddy is normally a great shot at targets, and has put in the time at the range practicing. The buck was well within his effective target range, but he just couldn't control his emotions as he is new to hunting. He ends up shooting all around the deer without the deer even flinching. After running low on ammunition, the buck finally decided he had enough and walk away. My buddy did end up harvesting a much smaller buck later in the hunt at the same distance. One perfectly placed shot and it was over. It's crazy what buck fever can do to any hunter."
