I think this guy should have double checked his equipment before taping his hunt. Laugh http://www.debosroom.com/gunpics/14213_STRIKE_BUCK.wmv

I missed a goose today. I did NOT catch the episode on film - but if I had, I would NOT put it out for world viewing. I'd probably study it home alone to see why I missed, then burn it.

Questions: 1) are those blinds in the background? 2) on opening day does each blind have a group of hunters? 3) is this typical? ... and 4) where (is the film taken)? ... and, finally, 5) do all the deer around there give hunters 3 standing shots? The ones around here don't.

This video has got to be hoax! Look at all the things wrong with it. Isn't that a road the deer is standing in? It sure looks like a dirt road, and yeah that looks like a stand in the distance - along a dirt road??? Shooting towards that stand in the road...???

The person shooting needs a WHOLE LOT of practice. He got 3 shots! and couldn't hit the deer - broadside no less.

1. Yes those are blinds in the backround.
2. No they ussually do not put hunters in those stands, if there is a hunter in a stand close by.
3. No this is not typical, but it does happen from time to time. When the animal co not figure where the shots have come from, or what the h*** you are shooting at.
4. By the looks I would have to say out West (Texas, New Mexico), a Ranch style hunt.
5. Your are right the deer up here do not give you a give second chance very often, let alone a third.

It looks like to me the hunter needed some major help, and should practice his shooting alittle more. Brick Wall,)

The road appears to be a service road for the powerline nearby. We have one running through our field on a powerline.

I know of a guy that I no longer trust b/c of his recent hunting ethics, ie shooting at deer with illegal ammo, on someone elses property, and so on. But last season he was hunting in south alabama and right at dark a doe walked out. He shot at the deer four times with a .300 win mag then took the SKS from his dad who was with him and shot seven times until the deer finally ran off. Brick Wall,) His dad confirmed the story. That's one I'll never hunt with again.

A total of eleven shots fired, no animal to prove it. I think someneeds glasses, and needs to go through a hunting course, with extensive training on how to shoot, again. Shame on You! Think

Couple years ago I assembled a quick sneak on some deer I saw from the road. Quick got permission, parked, snuck, easy shot at 150 yards. Clean miss. Tried again, miss. Soft ground I couldn't tell where the bullets were going. Went back to the rig to get more ammo and think. Then I went around and got closer (head them off). Seventy-five yards, clean miss. I just packed it up and went home. Not worth it to make more noise and deliver a cripple shot. Couple days later went out to see where my gun was shooting, and, sure enough, about 5 in. low at 50 yards. (Bumped it on that sheep hunt????) Went back to the same field after re-zeroing and got a deer, first shot. At some point you need to realize that something is SERIOUSLY wrong, and STOP.

This guy I'm speaking of is just a common fellow. He took his hunter saftey course this past summer. He took it at home on the computer and then attended a field day for the tests. He is, other than hunting a very responsible fellow, I have shot skeet and fished with him for years. He has worked for me for about three years. It's just when it comes to hunting he has no control over himself. It scares me for my personal and others saftey, and after a recent event where he shot at a deer with #4 waterfowl shot, while we were on the water, and it was on someone else's property( all of which are illegal Shame on You! ). I have since refused to hunt with him Talk to the Hand .

The human population could be sorted into several groups:

First group: those who have no interest in hunting, or minimal interest. In my opinion, leave them alone with regard to hunting, even if they are your children. Everyone will be happier, and there will be fewer hunters in the field.

Second group: those who `wanna' go hunting, maybe even `really wanna go', but don't have either the desire or capacity to do it responsibly. I run from these people.

Third group: the very few left after filtering out via the first two groups ... let's go!
