Best way to kill
How is the best way to kill a wounded deer if you can walk up to it ?

shoot it in the heart,its quick and humane.

i agree with joel. if you dont have a firearm call a game warden and let them do it.

A club no poke it in the eye no sit on it's head no grab it by the tail swing it around and hit it's head on a tree awwww never mind just shoot it again. j/k
Seriously what ever you do be carefull and don't get to close to the hoofs or horns cause they can hurt ya.

yeah we touch the eye and if it isnt a trophy worthy buck...shoot behind the ear so it is a guaranteed stinks to do that though

This may sound bad but instead of wasting another round, i will just knife if through the heart. That can get dangerous though and i wouldnt recommend it if you dont feel comfortable. Ive done this on 2 deer and it has worked out. Sometimes its sad because the knife will pulse with the heart for a few seconds before it stops.

Head shot. Instantaneous kill and most humane at that point. Anything else (heart shot, knife to heart, etc) is a slower-bleeding kill and is more suffering for the animal.

I also shoot in the head quick kill + if there is any chance the heart is not damaged I am not wasting it
I love the heart better then the tenderloins

I always dispatch from a few feet away, too dangerous to get close to a wounded animal. Head shot or vitals, whatever is appropriate at the time. Worst time is tracking at night without a decent weapon.
