This story was submitted by Steve Chapman of Polson, MT:
Have you ever fallen over a root while hunting deer? This is the story.
Got my self up, dusted off and seen the biggest buck of my life at about 150 yards lying under a pine tree. Pulled up emptied my model 742 Remington 30-06 at it and it was still lying there.
Dropped the clip reached in my pocket for 2nd clip jammed it in my Remington released the bolt forward it would not go, SO I JAMMED THE BOLT FORWARD with the heel of my palm and that is when I realized I had stuck my extra pack of cigarettes into the rifle and had them all smashed up as I watch the Buck get up and Walk away.
Never have I yet to this day seen a whitetail of that caliber.
