My grandson, Conner (9 years old), took this photo this morning with his dad’s phone camera! Is this a great shot or what? Very seldom do you ever see pheasants sitting up on a fence as they’re usually hunkered down in the cover or doing that low flyover thing that pheasants are famous for. And making that rattley sound that always scares the snot out of me. I think Conner took the picture close to their house where we have cattle out on pasture.
His mom put the picture on her Facebook page and some of our past hunters had some sage comments:
Hunter #1: Oooo! this is known as a skillet shot. I bet even Hunter #2 might be able to hit one of these!!
Hunter #2: You see whatcha do is you go down the fence about 25 yards and line your shot up with the gate so that you get all three with one shot!
