    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!

    how do we know it ran off to a slow death and not shot again, did he balls it up ? or miss by 1/4 inch, never had a deer that you had to follow up, then you have not shot enough deer. As to posting it on you tube, people seem to need to bear there souls for some unknown reason.

    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...

    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.

    Absolutely spot on, at the point of realising it was still breathing the idiot should have put the bloody camera down and shot it again, IMO, that's what I would have done anyway.

    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
