i just want to make sure everyone understands im shooting the other deer not for the antlers but because i believe the other (wounded)deer belongs to whoever shot it first.if it was 1 min before the end of legal time then i would put it out of its misery.however a shoulder wound should have dropped it on the spot if it didnt the wound is superficial ,maybe im wrong. i just wouldnt want the confrontation with the other hunter who comes looking.people get crazy over a deer and i dont want to argue with someone holding a gun who may shoot me .Thats the NYC in me ,we're not very trusting.sad but true
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
