We ran across this video from YouTube user Burnin Eights this past weekend and couldn’t help sharing it with everyone. Two anglers were musky fishing on a remote-looking lake when they got the scare of their lives. Someone nearby seemed to be target shooting with a .22 rifle when a bullet hit the front of the anglers’ boat. It’s unclear whether or not it was due to ricochet, but either way, it was certainly poor judgement by the shooter. The bullet came within inches of hitting the angler in the front of the boat.
