Blew my chance at a limit

Didn't get out till noon as I was looking for some new spots. Found one that looked good, asked permission and the guy told me to go tear them up. First rabbit jumped in less than 5 minutes. Dogs circled it back in less than 5 minutes, I had a perfect shot and decided to pass on it (I'll get it when the dogs circle it back, I told myself). Dogs never circled it back, it went into a stone wall. Took about 20 minutes to jump another. This one and the 3rd one were shot. Two in the game bag when the 4th was jumped. Seen this one twice but couldn't get the shot off. Seen it three more times and missed 3 times. Almost a 2 hour run before it gave the dogs the slip. If I shoot the first rabbit and if I don't miss 3 times on the 2nd, I have my limit. Still 2 in the bag on a 4 hour hunt, not to shabby.

Almost Joe

We had a decent day, jumped about a dozen and ended up with 5 to show for it.
