He should have followed the correct procedures in such matters!!!.........."SSS".
years back, a cousin of mine shot a deer, and did not find it after looking for the remainder of the day, the next morning, he shot another, and while tracking that deer, he came upon the one he shot the previous day. instead of letting another in our group tag it, he called the game warden before he told anyone in our party.
in the end, we were all accused of poaching, and were "under investigation" our names were taken by the official one by one as we returned to our camp. the official contacted the property owner (who we had known for the majority of our lives) and since that day, we no longer have permission to hunt that land. although none of us were officially cited, not even the man that shot the extra deer. maybe sometimes, it's better to say nothing at all.
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
That is, until we score on that big buck or bull. We work to get it out of the field and skinned as quickly as possible to cool it down. But try as we might, we just can’t get...
