While participating in a party hunt, this hunter (John Oens) shoots 1 ten point and 2 eight point bucks in 35 seconds with an Ithaca Deer slayer III with a 20 gauge. The first buck is at the 200 yard range but the Hornady SST slugs does its job.
This shooting skill is off the charts. Try doing this, yourself! It’s difficult task to harvest two bucks in one hunt, much less three.
The hunter and his uncle are driving the deer which forces them up on their feet and gives the hunters their shots. Though it seems like he shoots a lot, the hunter is a pretty good shot by downing three deer with limited ammo locked and loaded.
All three bucks are good sized deer. The gun is pretty darn accurate as you can tell by the first semi-long distance shot to finish off the first deer behind the tree.
When it’s all said and done the hunter harvests two 8-pointers and one 10-pointer in 35 seconds.
Alright, just to give you some background before all the shooting starts: I’m making a Deer drive with family and friends when I’m walking through the center of this piece, and I notice that herd of deer are trying to cut out the side of our drive. So I picked out a nice buck at what looks like about two-hundred yards, he stops with his head just behind a tree, and I take a shot.
[Shooting and pursuit]
Alright, so while I’m working my way up this hill to check on my first buck I shot at, I wanna tell you about the shotgun that I’m using. I’m shooting the Ithaca Deer Slayer III, chambered in 20 gauge. This was a 200-yard gun. It’s accurate, it’s reliable, it’s made like a rifle, and it looks like a shotgun. And I’m shooting Hornady SSTs out of it.
Alright, let’s take another look at this thirty-five seconds of shooting. Buck number one at the top of the hill, he goes right down. Then I fire a couple more rounds at these bucks that’re running. They run toward my uncle, and you’ll hear him shoot a couple times. I shoot at another buck, and then two more come from back by my uncle. So buck number two is hit, buck number three is hit. Then this shot finishes buck number three.
So here we are back to buck number one, looking for him, I’m making my way to the top of the hill, and then I see him move. I’ll take one more shot to put him down. I just approach him to make sure that he’s finished off, and he’s a decent eight-pointer. Then I have to go track down buck number two. Here’s number three, he’s still down. Decent little eight-pointer. Then I look for blood and find some, and here’s buck number two. Nice little ten-pointer. That’s three bucks in thirty-five seconds. Some meat in some freezers, another good day for me.
