We’ve had the “Dumbest” thing you’ve done or seen with a gun and the “Stupid” stories so I thought, how about one on the coolest shot you ever made. One day I was pheasant hunting with some friends when we came to a small patch of trees and tall grass in the middle of the field we were in. The kind that is good cover for the birds. It was small so I just let my dog Kona wonder in while I walked around it. I was carrying a double barreled 12 ga. and just had it hanging at arm’s length in front of me. Suddenly Kona flushed a rooster of course surprising the crap out of me. I swung the shotgun and made a great shot dropping the bird. One of my buddies exclaimed, “Did you just shot that bird from the hip”? Sure enough I had not shouldered the gun, I just dropped it from the hip.
