View Full Version : Good thing for bad aim

So I was at Canoe Pass the other morning enjoying the sunrise and waiting for birds, when a pair of swans flew overhead. All of a sudden shots rang out. Can you believe that amongst three guys and nine shots none of them figured it out? Good thing they all had bad shots.

That's crazy.

It's like the difference between a beagle and a great Dane.

I was there on sunday and there was lots of swans in the area, one must be carefull and know the target before pulling the trigger.I also noticed lots of empty casings on the dyke, it is stuff like that wich makes it hard for the honest guy to continue to hunt so close to home.

Did anyone approach these clowns and give them a word of advise? :wink:

And did the empties get picked up? Makes it so the anti's who walk that dyke don't have any ammo (pun intended) so to speak. Most who reload are always happy to collect once fired cases.:-D

It is unbelievable what some will do.

Someone should take those losers on a walkabout in Stanley Park.
This a goose, this a duck, and these big things with a really long freaking neck is a swan.

I was out hunting last fall and I had a couple of swans catch me by surprise just before dark, depending on what angle they're flying and what altitude sometimes it's hard to tell, I had the shotgun swinging on them until I made a positive ID. You've got to know exactly what you’re shooting at before you pull the trigger.

Sounds like these guys were very inexperienced duck hunters and thought that they were shooting at snow geese. That or people who blatantly disregard the laws and shoot whatever flies within gun range.
