    Man congratulations! What an awesome story. I bet your heart was pounding when that first click happened and you realized you were about to have to rack one with him that close!

    @Southeastern I was in disbelief anyway that it worked!! He actually started strutting right as I was doing it and never had a clue I was there...still have no idea what he thought it was

  • Southeastern's avatar

    @Eli He thought it was the craziest sounding yelp he’d ever heard haha!

  • Ricky's avatar

    @Southeastern 😂 last one he’ll ever hear

  • Eli's avatar

    @Southeastern lol must have🤣😂he probably never saw another human in his life that wanted to kill him cuz nobody was stupid enough to pack a shotgun up that mountain

  • Southeastern's avatar

    @Eli Well good for you for getting it done! 🦃

  • Southeastern's avatar

    @Ricky You got that right!

  • Eli's avatar

    @Ricky his buddy probably won't fall for it though😂🤣 I might just have to start loading my gun to call them in if nothing else works

  • Ricky's avatar

    @Eli 😂 you’re probably right
