Default Deer Takes Down Hunter

It's getting harder out there every day folks.

Quote:
ALBION, Ind. -- A northeastern Indiana hunter has died after struggling with a buck he had just shot.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says 62-year-old Paul Smith of Fort Wayne died Monday during a deer reduction hunt at Chain O'Lakes State Park about 20 miles northwest of the city. It says the Noble County coroner says the death was due to a lacerated liver, possibly suffered during the struggle. ...Full Story

WOW - that is horrible. I'm always cautious approaching any deer, even a doe! I make sure I nudge it from a safe distance away before getting too close

I learned to let deer expire the hard way. When I was about 15 I was bow hunting with my dad. He had shot a good 8pt and I was so excited for him I ran right up on the deer and grabbed it. The deer jumped up, began to kick, and tried to gore me with its antlers. I jumped back and ran to a somewhat safe distance. The deer jumped up again and tried to charge but fell over only a few feet from where it was laying and finally passed.....pretty scary. I did have my bow and my dad had gone to the truck to get his knife. I got lucky but learned a valuable lesson

Sounds like we all learned that way. I learned on a not so dead wild hog. Walked up to him, kicked him in the testicles. Evidently that is what wakes up a comatose pig. Good thing I had a pistol in my hand.

After that I give an animal plenty of time.

OH MY I might just wake from the dead on that one & you probably would need to use your pistol

I had a bow-shot doe kick me into the next county some years ago. It has made me a tad more coutious when approaching any down animal for any reason.

It's funny now but when it happened I was pretty shaken up. It was about midnight, I was sitting over a lit feeder in a blind. I had my phone in one hand for light asi walked up to him, pistol in the other. I totally did not expect it. My buddy was in a blind about a mile away.
