I probably would have let him go. But he was favoring a rear foot. Had an old gunshot wound right at a joint. I’m not sure how a man can miss by this much.

Congratulations, I went after a Muntjac today and all I got was wet and cold.

I remember years ago (25-30) coming across a buck limping with a green, I mean green, shoulder. Wasn't legal but I put him down anyway, thinking the right thing to do. Talking my way out of a ticket - if caught- was not a worry back then with the wardens of the time. Today's Montana warden is more likely to be a college educated, zero experience and city bred. Some are excellent though too many an example of the state of the system.

As a kid, my Dad shot a BIG buck at a 10 section place in Sonora. That buck had a similar wound just N of the hock, big around as a soda can. Asking our old friend Felix about the deer he said he'd be thinking about that wound every time he ate it, and we left it for the varmints.
I shot a doe that was limping badly with the left front ankle locked backwards and funky looking wound, and left it for varmints. The dude that shot the deer in the ankle went driving around the ranch for hours and came back to a missing deer that he thought was stolen by a lion :roll: he was not invited back.
Handsome looking deer there.

I plunked a doe during ML season over twenty years ago . She was hobbling along when I shot her . When I looked at her the left front hoof and about 3 to 4 inches above were missing musta been awhile because it was pretty well healed if you disregard about half an inch of bone sticking out .

Injuries like that are enough to make you want to enforce some type of hunting apprentice situation. Like families used to do.

When we had access to that 3600 acres near Del Rio, I took a lot of guys hunting out there. There were plenty of deer, but the Audad seemed to capture everyone's attention. An Audad is all gut and very little in the way of heart and lungs and those are way up front. I cannot tell you how many of these animals we took that had multiple healed over gunshot wounds. Those goats are TOUGH!

I generally shoot animals up close. This one was about 15 yards with a 130 gr Hog Hammer Remington factory load in a .300 Blackout. He went all of about 10 yards before piling up.

Many years ago my brother and I were deer hunting when he shot a nice 6x6 mule deer buck. When we got to him to field dress him I noticed one front knee was the size of a large lemon. In the center was an old scar caused by a bullet hole. The deer couldn't bend his knee but somehow had healed up, and was doing fine up until that afternoon.

Scott i used to hunt a place on the Devils River about 19,000 acres and ran into Audad pretty regularly, usually hunting turkeys while armed with .22s. This place was near Bakers Cave and had excellent fishing large and small mouth, catfish, caves. The place was so big you could get lost, but would not support any livestock excepting goats.

I'd sure like to have a large place like that to wander around on again. When the first white men came to that area, they wrote that the grass was "stirrup deep". Now, due to the lowering of the water table and overgrazing by sheep and goats, much of it looks like a moonscape.

Center pivot irrigation has lowered the water table horribly.

Here's one man's way of dealing with that situation.

Paul,

That is a wonderful example of what we should be doing. I'm glad you shared that video.
