Sometimes when things do not go right all you can do is shake your head and make the best of a bad situation. But when that situation is absolutly hilarious, you post it to Facebook so everyone else can laugh with you and feel your pain.
That is what happened when Tennesee hunter Steve Saunders Jr. had a mishap with a spray can of Tink’s 69. Heforgot the golden rule of hunting does not just apply to firearms. He now knows, always point your muzzle in a safe direction and dont aim at anything you do not intend to shoot.
Here is his story in Steve’s own words that he posted to the group Tennesee Deer Hunters and I have to say he was a real sport about it.
I must confess this in the name of integrity to my fellow hunters. Something terrible has happened.
On my trek into the stand this afternoon, I decide to put out a little scent. I’m putting “love in the air” if you know what I mean. I’m spraying doe in heat urine, Tink’s 69 in the new gel spray can, to be specific.
It’s about 31-32 degrees here. The spray nozzle on the can of pee is a little frosty. The can stops spraying pee. I try to remedy the issue by cleaning out the sprayer hole. Suddenly, the issue is remedied, and the can begins to operate properly and spray, directly into my face.
I broke the first rule of firearms and doe pee in aerosol cans, treat every gun/cans of doe pee as if it is loaded. I broke the second rule of firearms/cans of doe pee. I aimed at something I didn’t intend to shoot.
I have no one to blame but me, and I’m pretty bummed. I’m paying a massive amount of stupid tax at the moment. My face smells like a hot doe cooch, and that makes me sad. It’s pungent, and it’s real loud.
My main concern now is that I will kill a big buck. If anyone has hunted with me, you know how superstitious I am. I’d have to take a face shot of hot doe pee before every hunt. I still hunt with my underwear on inside out from a big buck I killed when I was 17, but that’s another story for another day.
On a lighter note, if you want an estrous doe urine that a buck will be able to smell from three counties away, Tink’s 69 gel in the aerosol can might be for you.
I probably shouldn’t post this to Facebook, and I know I’m gonna catch heck from a lot of buddies, but I have more integrity than that.
I’m sorry for the long post. I hope you get a laugh out of my stupidity. Have a great day, God bless.
Thanks for the story Steve we all had a good laugh and remember kids always point you deer pee in a safe direction.
