This wasnt too serious but it could have been worse. Went out last Sunday to hunt and got everything ready. I went to grab my gun and carry it on my shoulder. The top swivel attachment on the front of the stock gave way and my gun goes barrel first right into the ground. I look down and my barrel is plugged with mud. Great, Im thinking, hunts over but I take the antennae off my truck and it pushes the mud out. I cut a piece of cloth and push it though to make sure there is no mud left in it. I wasnt able to hunt out of the stand I wanted because I didnt trust the swivel to hold so luckily I had a ground blind still ready, didnt see anything. Im just glad it didnt give loose as I was pulling it up the tree and could have damaged my gun. Just wanted to give a reminder to check out all your gear before going hunting. Anything can come loose or break and ruin a hunt or worse.
