So, we've all been playing Duck Hunt, missed the quota of Ducks, and had the Dog laugh at us.
But if you're playing the Arcade version (a.k.a. Vs. Duck Hunt), you get a special Bonus Round every once in a while where the Dog leaps out of the grass.
Which is totally your opportunity, so let fly.
He'll complain a little bit, but, hey, some folks might say that he had it coming.
