To be honest, this story is not mine. I was at a dinner a few nights ago and sitting around the table were some avid hunters. We commenced talking about firearms which inevitably led to some great hunting stories. So, I am going to post one from a friend of mine named Howard. I will tell it, as best as I can recall, as he told it.”
“I used to live out on a farm and one day during Pheasant season, there was a light snow. It blanketed everything in an inch or two and was pristine. I thought that this would be a great time to hunt down a pheasant as we often had them on our property.
So, I climbed in my truck and drove slowly down the drive looking out both sides of the truck. Before long, I saw what I was looking for. A set of pheasant prints in new fallen snow.
I climbed out, grabbed my shotgun, and carefully followed those tracks. Before long the tracks stopped. It didn’t look like the pheasant took off, I’ve seen what that looks like in the snow. No, these tracks looked like they just stopped. So I started looking around. Right next these tracks there was a bush so I looked carefully inside and sure enough, there was the pheasant just sitting there staring at me.
On a whim, I reached in and grabbed it by the neck. Now what am I going to do with this. So I threw it up in the air and shot it!”
Everyone at the table busted out laughing!
“It was the easiest shot I ever made!”
