Have you ever emptied your weapon?

Have you ever been hunting predators and pulled the trigger instead of squeezing it, got rattled because the shot was so close, forgot to chamber a round, forget to click off the safety...or just plain ole missed and get started shooting all the while thinking to yourself, "I ain't lettin' this one get away".

Have you ever emptied your weapon, in an attempt to kill a coyote?

Good hunting, Bowhunter57

Re: Have you ever emptied your weapon?

I have fired the first shot and then went to chamber the next round but didn't pull the bolt back far enough to grab the next round. Next thing you know "click"!!! Needless to say the second yote didn't hang around to let me figure out what I did.

Consider it as your being a real sportsman and giving them a warning shot or second chance and next one you realy mean business.

I emptied my gun once, 870 12 ga 3" magnum with W-W lead BB.
I called in 3 coyotes together one night a few winters back and the action was fast and furious. I dumped the first one at about 20 yds, hit the second one hard at 25 yds and missed the third one. My forth and final shot was a finisher on the second coyote.

I had a buddy that kicked up a huge buck as he walked by. He emptied his rifle as the buck trotted away.

After the buck disappeared, he asked if he missed?

I told him, No.

He never pulled the trigger. I helped him find all the loaded rounds off the ground.

Re: Have you ever emptied your weapon?

The first Coyote that I ever called in, I emptied my weapon. All 20rds. It was embarrassing as hell and I did it in front of a friend. I had such an adreneline rush from being surprised to see it-70yds away- OMG. I blamed it on the extremely inaccurate Mini-14 that I was using, LOL. Seriously though, it got me thinking. I needed to modify something to force me to concentrate on the shot. I bought a single shot 223 shortly after and the next one I called in I DRT'd him at 275yds- first shot.
