Holy **** indeed! That was educational! Wonder where it was hit? Probably low neck and missed any bone.
Just watched it again, looked like a throat wound maybe? Deer knocked down/out by impact but not fatal. Deer runs off to die a very slow death - not good!

fancy posting a video of yourself ballsing it up
All speculation without being there and seeing where the bullet actually struck during a gralloch....
Here is the link to a friends story with a large red stag that was shot smack on the money and what it did. Sh*t happens as they say...
1st NORFOLK STAG
It seems to me that if he hadn't been so busy filming he might have had the nous to put another bullet in an animal he could see was still breathing (a fairly conclusive indicator that it was still alive, and suffering).
What was he planning to do instead? Stand by and wait for it to bleed out? Jump on it with a knife?
As I see it, the best decision he made was to post his mistake on Youtube for others to learn from.

"Oh [dear], they probably heard that in the village!" - RickoShay
to me it seems like he was using a head type camera not hand held but more to the point seems like he had never been in a situation before where the deer had still been breathing and definately wasn't expecting it to jump up.
Although he has negative comments i do think videos in this context are good for newcomers to see the reactions of deer that have been shot.
how many see a runner and fear the worse everyone has and will.
with experience you know what to do and you learn more from mistakes than any book he will never forget that and hopefully it was dealt with, atb wayne
