Rack or not to Rack

So as most of us know in michigan, this past weekend was opening of the Firearm deer season. A bunch of us guys got together and headed to the great northern woods for hunting, great food and a little razzing. So I’m gonna tell you a little story that let the guys razz away lol. Opening morning we all go out to our stand and one in our party was hunting the farthest stand back. He was sitting there when a nice 6 point came in. He was patient but the buck wouldn’t come in he just hung back in the brush. The buck came a little closer and it appeared he had a clear shot but tricky through the brush. He aimed steady and with a loud bang the gun went off. The buck stepped back and stood behind the brush. He then racked his bolt action slowly to eject the cartridge pushed the bolt forward quietly. The buck went off unscaved. So as he sat there looking at the thick spot he tried to shoot through, a nice spike horn came in. The buck eased his way closer. There he was broadside at 25 yards. The shot was completely clear. He raised his gun, put the crosshairs behind the shoulder. Then click !!!!! The gun did not fire. He immediately realized when he racked the 1st cartridge out quietly, he did not rack the bolt back far enough so the next cartridge did not load. Double disappointment for opening morning. Although we have all felt that pain in some form or another we had to razz him. What fun is deer camp with out some fun. The next 2 days were full of laughs and digs this time at his expense. There is nothing like deer camp, it’s the best experience for the sportsman. Like my buddy says there is no trout camp, bear camp, no rabbit camp. There is only one camp and that’s deer camp… Tell me your stories
