Hmmmm reminds me of a hunt I went on in Wyoming, stopped in this little town called Baggs and we got the food and hunting license stamp there and before us a three guys had two carts, one for food and the other was loaded with beer and liquor. I asked these guys where they were hunting and they said up in the Medicine bow area right where I was hunting. So we put our stuff in the truck and head up to the mountains where we find a campsite to crash for the week and the rest of the day we spend scouting for possible areas to hunt. We find a nice hill/canyon where we thing deer might pass through so we planned on going there the next morning. We get up at 3am for coffee and breakfast, ****ing cold in the morning too, anyway we get our gear and drive out in our quads to the spot we scouted. We had a good hike down the hill and its about 7 in the morning and all of a sudden POW! We heard a gunshot in the distance, look at my dad and whisper somebody got one...pow! (silence) Im glassing off into the nearby hills where the gunshots are coming from maybe to see deer on the move, but didn't see anything. pow! (thinking ok maybe 3 is the charm)....pow! At this point Im going this guy lost the deer and is shooting aimlessly. Pow! What the ****! The guy rattled off 2-3 more shots, unbelievable. So we hiked a bit more and then turned around back to the quads and ironically enough we saw those same guys buying liquor and food at the local market pass by. Now assuming it was them shooting nearby(Im pretty sure it was)then chances are they drank the night before, no reason to rattle off 5 shots especially since before your hunt you get your sights set in at the range or something.
