My dad and cousin both shot the same buck. I believe it went down like this: Dad draws first blood, but cousin knocks it down. They worked it out amicably, but what is the standard for this occurrence?




Here's my Dad's version, in his own unique prose. https://wp.me/p3bCKM-10d

I'd always heard with big game it was first blood drawn, but with small it was whoever puts the killing shot on the animal. What are your thoughts?

Assuming the first shot was a kill shot and deer would have died shortly after. Id go with first one and thank the cousin for stopping it

First blood drawn does not equal a kill except on a package hunt. Did your Dad fire and your cousin fire immediately thereafter? As in they were together with your cousin shooting back-up? If so, I'd say it's 50/50. If the deer could have escaped after your Dad shot him, he's your cousin's buck.

Good question. They had plenty of room. Don't really know.

After reading your dad's account of the hunt, I would say it is both their deer to be shared 50/50.

Itís always been whoever drew first blood with me. Iíve put down a lot of deer that were wounded. I never thought to claim one.

Robert Earl Keen and his brother once shot the same deer. They had it mounted, then cut in half, and each got a side. Nice Hill Country 10 pointer.....true story.

That is an idea that you'll get a hell of a laugh out of.

Or, you could just both be in the picture and enjoy it forever!!
