Guess if he was standing there bleeding and obviously not gonna make it you could either back out and hope the coyotes dont eat him or stand there all night with your flashlight on him
. Just wonder how many times this happens. Would it not be ethical to just go ahead and finish the deer? I know the most ethical thing woulda been to make a lethal shot to start with but that dont always happen. I just read alot of post on different forms that people are looking for their deer at night and they usually state that they are taking their gun. Well im thinking its night time so what are your plans with your gun if you find him alive????
