    What has this to do with mentoring how would it help, these men would have been hunting since they were kids.it most probable has more to do with the way they carry deer out, Usually in the piggy back method the same as the Americans do if you have a long way to carry them. It cause fatalitys in the us every year.

    do you see many deer walking on their hind legs with their heads flopping about and think "jesus, must shoot that quick before it gets away!"

    I can see your point but you still have to be a weapons grade asshole to shoot a grown man in the head and say you thought it was a deer!!

    Brewsher I have to agree with you on making sure what you are shooting at, but when mounted in thick cover you tend to stoop, so the head looks level I have seen it, a lot of it is to do with buck fever.
