Default What an idiot!

From time to time I've read stories about hunters who've shown up in camp with a new rifle and scope. When asked by the guide if the weapon is sighted in, the hunter replies, "Sure. I screwed the scope on this morning." Well, the latest issue of Bugle (elk magazine) has this topper:[/align][/align]"I once packed in a client for a hunt and realized halfway to camp that the man did not have a rifle in his scabbard. 'It's in the duffel,' the hunter assured him. It was. Still unassembled, in four pieces: scope, barrel, action, and stock. Never been fired and shipping tags still attached. We had to put it together with a Leatherman, whittle on the stock to get it to fit, and then bore sight it on the cook-tent table. The ill-prepared hunter then produced four boxes of ammo: 30.06s, 300s, 338s, and 270s. 'Which shells does my rifle take?' he asked." [/align][/align]Question: How does someone so stupid ever graduate from grade school?[/align]

I can't imagine I'd ever be an outfitter, but if I were I think I'd require everyone to show a minimal level of proficiency before even heading for the trail head. Be nice to know what effective ranges the clients could shoot competently.

hard to believe anyone could be that stupid. I guess those are the types that like canned hunts.

Folks like that have probably seen too many cop shows where the hired assassin pulls the pieces of his rifle out of a suitcase and assembles it and then slides on the scope just before wacking somebody at 300 yards.

It would be easy to tell this guys effective range. Somewhere right around knife distance!
