I was a Marine if you recall Rogue so I believe I know a little bit about shooting a rifle; and it is my humble opinion she rushed every shot but the last. It also appears the animal was a bit closer on the last shot.
I base this mainly on her dad saying the first shot was high. She should have then took her time and adjusted for the second shot but she rushed each subsequent shot until the last when the guy gave her another rifle and something to rest it on.
They had apparently been out for a few days so the rifles and scopes should have been calibrated.
Well, so you were a Marine. Are you a hunter? Next, watch the video again!<quoted text>
"I was a Marine if you recall Rogue " Can't be. You voted Obama. Rogue, LRS and the birther birfoons won't believe you.
It is 3:26 long. Now who edited it, I d not know. But notice all but the last shot was fired from a rifle with a wood stock and the last one had a black synthetic stock. Also the article claims she was shooting a "varmint" rifle when I see no evidence it was small caliber. The second rifle had a long action and had "belted" cartridges in the stock indicating it was something like 7mm Remington Magnum or a 300 Winchester Magnum which would kick more than, let's say, a Winchester 308 (7.62 NATO).
Yes, the father did chamber her rounds for her and I have no idea why, but she did fire all the shots to include the one that finally brought down the elk.
No, the elk was not close. They were using binoculars!!!
Yes, someone should have checked zero on all the rifles after they arrived at the camp.
Oh, I did buy a Marlin lever action in 45-70 Gov. while planning my fishing trip to Alaska last year. I had no intention to hunt but you need a heavy caliber weapon if a Alaskan Browny wants your fish or you!!!
I have never encountered a grisly bear but the Alaskan Brownies are said to be larger than the ones in the 48-states.
