Being around firearms most of my life I have to say, the episode of Palin's Alaska where she shoots a CARIBOU (Not a moose like all the news outlets are saying) is down right embarrassing.
I seriously doubt she has to many hours at the range, or even handling a firearm.
First, if your going to claim to be an "avid outdoors man" at least have the wherewithal to carry your own rifle.
Second, crossing a creek is part of hunting, don't pull your pants up and dance across the creek like your going to melt
Third, six shots??? are you kidding me? At least have the common decency to sight in your firearm BEFORE going afield. Six shots at a standing target, less than 300 yards? Holy crap. The wench then had to switch firearms to "get the job done" (admittedly, after changing firearms, the Caribou was down with one shot)
Fourth, seriously? you couldn't load your own firearm? the guide had to do it for you. Pffft. get real
after watching this episode, I have come to the conclusion that Sarah Palin is great eye candy, but that where it ends.
I am seriously disappointed in her claim to be an Outdoors man/person/hunter
Not to brag, but I have shot deer. Everyone of them was down with one shot and they never went more than 40 yards. The last one I shot (a nice 6 pointer) went almost 20 feet before dieing.
