Well I missed the biggest buck I've ever seen in my short few years of hunting today, and I'm worried I'll never see him again. My rifle jammed on me as I tried to take a shot on a beautiful buck around 8am. By the time I got set for a second attempt my heart was pounding so hard I just plain missed. This is only my third year hunting deer, my question is will a buck come back after this happening?

He'll be back. Just keep the corn flowing. He likes corn.

Nah....he is in the next county and will not ever return.


















J/K No one really knows for sure. Keep some TC out and keep hunting him is the only way to tell. up

How did your gun jam as you were trying to take a shot? The deer will come back

He will come back, but will you be there when he does? And how did your gun jam?

This is a good question. Round in the chamber, and on safety as soon as I sit in the stand.

Second attempt... did the first shot miss and then the "jam"?

My guess is it was a lever or bolt action a d he tried to chamber a round too slow and it got wedged.

If you aren't going to keep a round in the chamber, you are better of single loading from the top. Then you can go as slow as you want and make as little noise as possible. But I don't see any reason whatsoever to not have a round chambered with the safety on once you are safely in your hunting spot.

Not sure it applies here, but nothing calms the nerves better than using a rifle that has been fired so often, the shooter need not even think about how theyre working it. And likewise, trying to load and work with a rifle that's new or seldom used only makes the mind even more nervous in clutch situations.

Simply put, when you see cross hairs on a target often, they bring your mind to ease. See them rarely, and the mind usually does just the opposite.

As for seeing him again, they never get old being stupid.
