What’s with these Republican politicians? First we have Dick Cheney shooting his hunting companion – taking a shot no real hunter would have ever even considered even drawing a bead on…
Now the Sno’ Ho’ killing a Caribou for political points. Actually after missing 4-5 shots – it’s more than likely somebody else shot the Caribou, and they edited it in. Even more suspicious is the fact that the Caribou didn’t spook and run away after having a gun go off next to it. I mean…If the game stands there, and lets you shoot at it all day like a paper target…
That’s target practice… Not hunting.
Seems the hunting crowd is miffed at the fact that the Sno’ Ho’ broke a few cardinal safety rules, and demonstrated an utter unfamiliarity with the skills, which she supposedly has been dong since she was a little kid.
What’s wrong with this picture?
1. A “Varmit Rifle” isn’t something you’d normally take to hunt game the size of a Caribou.
2. Either the rifle isn’t “sighted in”, or the Sno’ Ho’ can’t shoot for beans. And yes, shooting uphill does cause the shooter to shoot high, although having the target silhouetted against the sky is the easiest target there is. Any real hunter makes sure their equipment is in good functioning order before the hunt – and that includes sighting in the rifle. (more…)
