I demonstrated this failing when a rabbit came sneaking in behind me. He decided to find a healthier habitat just as I decided to make him my dinner. My first shot missed and he drove into a deep trail in the snow, so that only his ears were visible. I instinctively tried to back up for better alignment, but I did what you always do when attempting to back up fast on snowshoes: I fell. As I extended backward I had a full view of the departing rabbit. Calculating a double lead for the running hare and the falling hunter I pulled the back trigger, and scored a hit!
