Is this about respect for the animal, or self control on if you can or cannot you make the shot?

Straight on he signed his death warrant!

From behind probably pass, and wait! he'll give up those vitals if he doesnt...life goes on.

We can jibber jabber about ethics, respect for the animal
Whats that anyway first legal bull you see you wanna put a bullet in...Respect? Respect is what you earn when you dont take a shot your not comfortable with! and what your buddies give you when you turn his lights off at 600yds!

All other conditions are meaningless, the question remains CAN YOU OR CAN'T YOU MAKE THE SHOT?

Re: SHOT PLACEMENT

hmmm....chance wounding him/never finding him in the black timber he's surley headed into, or wait for a better shot...

WHY chance it....all that delicious meat...potentially reuined...

give him a toot on your cow call...let him turn and wack him with a high shoulder shot...LIGHTS OUT! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

i witnessed a shot similar to a texas while i was young and vowed never to chance it...it was ugly...

we were busy helping dad pack the ponies with a bull that he had taken earlier in the day when we heard a bugle not to far off. i didnt have a tag as i was too young and had missed seeing dad take his so off i went with this friend of my dads...hoping to see my first bull kill...

a bull was following a couple of cows into a quakie patch on the far side of high mountain ravine and this guy decided to try the shot. rifle was an '06 not sure what bullet but if i had to guess...probably a 180 partition from what i noticed he was hunting with in some later hunts...shot angle was a 3/4...maybe a little more... quartering away shot and he let a bullet fly hitting the bull...not sure exactly where but DOWN he went!...hit him like a bolt of lightening...then he got back up...almost instatntly...ran down the ravine dragging one hind and back up the other side into some HAIRY timber. we got close to him a couple of times but not close enough. we waited and waited for him to lay down but he NO intent of letting up...some friends of ours found the carcass the next spring while running cattle...nearly FOUR MILES from where we had last heard him [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]...too bad...it was a really nice 5x5...

Elk are tough critters...break em where it COUNTS THE FIRST TIME!

Re: SHOT PLACEMENT

You do not have any clue what respect is! Anti-gunners just wait for @#@##$"s like you to mouth off so they have more ammo. Every one of God's creatures deserve our utmost respect. You, I'm not so sure of. If a hunter is not 100% sure of a clean kill, PASS ON THE SHOT!!!

Re: SHOT PLACEMENT

Let me help you with these two posts:


Post #1:

"Sounds like another out of state yahoo that thinks shooting is hunting. PASS ON THE SHOT!"

[/ QUOTE ]

You seem to have a few "noise" words in there... they're wasted and contribute little. Here's how I'd edit that post.

"PASS ON THE SHOT!"

Again lots of noise works... they add little to the exchange of useful information:

Here's an edited version.

"Every one of God's creatures deserve our utmost respect. If a hunter is not 100% sure of a clean kill, PASS ON THE SHOT!!!"



Being you just joined and these seem to be your first two post I'd guess you skipped over the rules section. I'd suggest you re-read the site rules and abide by them. If after you have read the site rules you still feel a need to post in the manner of your initial two posts you are welcome to leave at this time without further posts.

Thanks and Welcome to LRH.
