What would you do in this situation? Be truthful.... Here is the scenario....... You have been planning all year for an out of state hunt in an area of Ky that regularly produces BIG bucks. This particular county has recently produced Boone and Crockett books bucks in both the typical and non typical catergories. You are hunting a farm that is in the heart of this big buck area. You only have ONE buck tag. You have spent a lot of time and money in preparation and the modern firearms opening morning is finally here. At 7:30 a.m. a real nice 9 point, big bodied buck comes walking in. He is not the buck that you dreamed of and since it is opening morning you are going to let him walk. THEN he steps out in the clear at only 23 yards and you see very plainly that he is wounded with a softball size of his intestines hangin out of this wound. He is not bleeding but you know that he is going to die a slow death and never be recovered by the one who shot him. Do you use your only buck tag on this buck or do you let him walk in hopes that he will wander by someone who is not trophy hunting? This is a true happening that I was confronted with just this past Saturday. I did not hesitate. I killed the buck, used my tag, and am happy that I did so. I am not happy with hunters who take unethical shots at game. With God willing there will be other chances to get my personal best.
