Wow, that's really graphic. I've never seen one bleed out like that.

Great looking deer, though.

I've never seen it pour out like that, either. I'm trying to figure out where the shooter was. Not to sound like Oliver Stone or anything, but based on the deer's reaction, it looks like the shot came from the right of the camera, or to the deer's left. However, that looks a lot like an exit wound, and yet in the still photos it looks like that same wound is on the right side of the deer. If it went through, why would he be bleeding out on just one side?

I have seen deer bleed out like that.

I have to use a shotgun to hunt them where I live.

That deer hit the ground dead for sure.

As gruesome as the vid may first appear it was a quick, humane kill shot.

In Illinois, we are required to use a shotgun, as well. I've been shooting deer for 20 plus years and never seen one bleed so profusely as that. I wonder if the deer had been on the run for awhile before he came into this hunter's sights. An elevated heart rate may have contributed to the bleeding. (speculating)

That said, I have no doubt the deer died a quick and humane death. Anything that bleeds out that quickly goes into shock almost immediately.

I have only seen one other deer bleed like that but it was shot in the nekck at close range kinda looked weird with the blood coming out like that squirting with the pulse. The sam with video that was a big whole and the blood came pooring out continuasly( cant spel). Good vidoe though nice deer and he shot behind the sholder for the heart! Yes
