that is what I would do also. i would have cut its throat the night that it was shot.jlh42581 said:Id cut his throat
Sounds like the deer was shot just before hours ended. Deer rolled down hill and out of sight from the hunter in stand. Hunter climbs down the tree and approaches the deer and legal shooting hours have passed.VaPa hunter said:What kind of bowhunter would not follow up a spine shot deer with a follow up shot? He doesn't even deserve to be in the woods.
I missed where the post says he waited in his stand for darkness to come....................oh, wait....VaPa hunter said:Throwing stones?
I'm sorry, but any bowhunter knows when they spine shoot a deer, which ethically, should always require a follow up shot.
I don't know about you, but I know my rear end would have been climbing down out of my stand and following up with a second shot right away to put that deer out of its misery. It not going anywhere, it's paralyzed.
