That sucks!

That just sucks in every way you can think of. I just do not understand why someone would shoot an animal and just let it rot. Makes no sense to me at all.

Agreed SGM. Unfortuanately

Agreed SGM. Unfortuanately though, it's idiots like the one that poached this antelope that give fuel to the anti's who say that hunting is all about killing, or the blood lust.  You see things like this, and people don't understand when we try to tell them that true hunters like the whole experience, and the kill is such a small part of it.

Whoever did this has a screw loose, simply put.  I would like to think they were going to take it with them, and were maybe scared off, but that's probably not the case.

I agree completely with both

I agree completely with both of you and while hunters will get the blame by people who don't know any better or what hunting really is all about it's likely that whoever did this has never hunted a day in thier lives and and did this as a twisted pastime.

Hopefully they get caught but as in most cases they probably won't unless they continue and someone sees them doing it.

The past two season I have

The past two season I have been up hunting we have seen to bucks running around with arrows stuck in them.  With that said I have never seen anyone following them try to get another shot in the.  So it always makes me wonder if they were shiot accidently or if someone was trying to get away with something.  We hunt in a very isolated place with not much people around during bow season.  one year we did have a BLM officer come up tell us about one we were already watching with the scope...he even told us if we had a chance we could take it down, but I felt a little unconfrantable about doing that cause we did not have a buck tag, we never did see it again after that day.
