    please learn how to shoot

    just want to put this out there....

    had to shoot a doe this morning someone shot and didn't hit good and it was walking around wounded.....

    must have been i few days back as she stunk of death with a nasty front leg/shoulder wound......could not salvage any meat from her as when i opened her up all the meat stunk...

    so the moral of the story is learn how to shoot to kill or stay out of the woods....

    rant over....

    I'd go one further and ask that many just not vote, or breed.

    Have used my tags on a couple wounded by others over the years.
    Dunno why their shots landed off the mark.

    Equipment issue, ammo issue, deflection (unseen) or bad shooting?

    Shot one that appeared to have been by a car, healed up but wouldn't make it through winter.

    Well just look around at the range when season is coming. Probably the only time of the year some of these guys get the gun out.

    Sadly, it has happened to a few hunters,skilled or not, just sad for deer.I found a freshly shot 11 pointer by my brothers farm, it was next to a creek just laying there.When we field dressed buck we coundnt find bullet hole,it turned out hunter shot at face of deer and bullet busted jaw and bullet traveled down throat into body cavity and bled internally.That hunter shot a beautiful big buck and LOST it.It taught me a lesson about shooting at a deer head on.I have that buck in my wood shop, glad it didnt get wasted.PS made great deer stiks etc,guys at work loved the roast I brought.

    When I used to float hunt for ducks, I used to find a lot of deer dead down by the water. I don't know if people shoot into the brush or if they overestimate their long range abilities or what.

    Don't forget to factor in the guys that just cant track. Not really a skill that you can practice at the range.

    Or in the evening, you will hear people shooting when it is just too dark to see well.

    After watching several obvious "hunters" at the range sighting their equipment in my first thought was sympathy for the deer. Most would be fortunate to hit a 8" pie plate at 25 yards.
