Bruce, were those gun kills? Or bow kills? Not that it would matter but I'd be suprised at being close to another hunter in bow season. Of course I'm saying that based on how the woods are here. And it was public land I assume. I can see where that might happen during a rifle hunt. I've been in the midst of them on public land. I also haven't had a deer run far using the rifle and ammo I do. Which is why I'm not fond of the smaller caliber rifles some people want to use. Sure any gun CAN kill a deer, but will it do it effieciently? (But that's for another debate). Only once was there a hunter that close to me during a gun hunt. I had no idea he was there and when he shot it scared the crap out of me. It was my brother in law. I found another place to hunt. I have been on the other end of it too. I shot a deer that another hunter had shot. They liked to walk the woods edge and jump deer then shoot at them. I seen them come in and set up on an escape route. 15 min later I heard them shoot once and then 5-6 more times. The buck came running right under me. I dropped it. I was gutting it when they walked up. The guy had shot it with a .223 military style rifle in the back ham and then emptied a handgun at it. I put the killing shot on it...I kept the deer. Even mounted it. It was the first one I took on purpose........ I feel no regrets.

yeah it does kinda stink, I think it's the same way in NH, is it ronn?
I hope this gives a better understanding as to why I'm not a big fan of waiting out the full 30 minutes.
and both were during Rifle season.

Oh and by the way....I wasn't nasty about it. We talked about it and he knew what he'd done.

I can understand your position southern man, no need in defending your actions.
I have however been on the other side as well and I gave the guy the deer that he shot,
I had to teach him how to dress it out tho, poor guy looked like him-->

Grins.....bet that was fun. I hate those situations tho...they never are easy to deal with. I was young and was dead set on that deer. I hate it for you as a young guy. I don't think I would do it to a younger hunter, as you were, as long as he put the shot on it.

First mortal wound and f&g will back you up.

Heard of it happening. Sorry it happened to you. that sucks.

with a gun thats a different story. that bullet can reach out and catch'em. I haven't had one go off on me. normally 10 yards at the most. but I'd track and slip hunt.

As far as loosing a deer to other hunters. If I'm following a good blood trail. ask to see their licences. state law you must present on demand to anyone that asks. If that doesn't work take out my cell and make a call to f&g.

When I lost the 6 pointer nothing was done. when I lost the 8, we called a game warden
he stated nothing could be done because nobody could prove that it would have been my bullet that killed the deer,
he also said He believed me about how it happened but there were no laws covering such situations.
In vermont only a Game warden or Police officer can ask to see youre license.

Yep, waiting even for rifle hunters is a good thing..... as in this story that was in todays paper:

Deer gets revenge after hunter shoots him

SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) -- A hunter bagged a big buck on the second day of firearms season, but the kill caused him a lot of pain. Randy Goodman, 49, said he thought two well-placed shots with his .270-caliber rifle had killed the buck on Nov. 19. Goodman said the deer looked dead to him, but seconds later the nine-point, 240-pound animal came to life.

The buck rose up, knocked Goodman down and attacked him with his antlers in what the veteran hunter called "15 seconds of hell." The deer ran a short distance and went down, and died after Goodman fired two more shots.

Soon Goodman started feeling dizzy and noticed his vest was soaked in blood.

So he reached his truck and drove to a hospital, where he received seven staples in his scalp and was treated for a slight concussion and bruises.
